Hello my friends! Today's card is another card I did for one of the challenges from last weekend. This challenge was to do a Fun Fold card. I decided to do a Side Step card because I haven't done one of these for a long time as well.
I used the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle for today's card. This is a super cute stamp set with a coordinating punch that punches out the scoop of ice cream and the cone.
I started by cutting and scoring my card base using Blackberry Bliss cardstock. To the left panel, I added a piece of DSP from the Ice Cream Corner DSP package. On top of this I added a piece of Basic White cardstock. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, I stamped three scoops of ice cream using three different colours. I stamped off once with the Blackberry Bliss and Pool Party ink but used the Petal Pink ink full strength. On top of the ice cream scoops I used the respective inks and stamped the sprinkles image stamp using the inks full strength. I punched out the scoops using the coordinating punch. I also stamped the cone image on a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Cinnamon Cider ink stamped off once. I added the detail on the cone using Cinnamon Cider ink full strength. I punched out the cone using the same punch. I added the ice cream cone on top of the Basic White cardstock using dimensionals.
To the smallest panel on the right side of the card, I added a strip of the same DSP from the Ice Cream Corner DSP.
For the middle panel on the right side, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock that I matted on a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. On the white piece, I stamped my sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set using Blackberry Bliss ink. I also added two ice cream cones that I fussy cut from the reverse side of the same piece of DSP that I used on the rest of this card. I also added a little bow that I tied using the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon. I adhered this between the two ice cream cones using a glue dot.
For the larger panel on the right side, I layered a piece of the same DSP on a piece of Basic White cardstock and then layered that on to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. On another scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the Popsicle image twice using Petal Pink ink. I wanted them to look like Creamsicles (one of my faves!). I also stamped the stick using Cinnamon Cider ink that I stamped off once and then added the coordinating wood detail stamp using Cinnamon cider ink full strength. I fussy cut these images out and added them to the panel using dimensionals.
What I used for today's card:
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I am really enjoying these challenges as it is encouraging me to try techniques I haven't done for ages. Today's card was really fun and I think I know an adorable little girl who would love this one. Is there a technique or fun fold that you haven't done for a long time? Maybe it's time to give it another go.
Stay well and keep creating!
