Good Afternoon! Today is a great day. The weather is absolutely beautiful. There's a cool breeze & the sun is shining. We are having a very cool summer. Temps way below normal but I am enjoying it so much! I guess we have some HOT weather coming our way for the weekend. I feel bad for the people that are having a very hot hot summer and they say a lot of them don't have air conditioning. Makes me thankful for what I have! I was looking through my newest Card Maker magazine and saw an ice cream cone card. I thought it might look cute with Tilda on the front eating her ice cream. I think it turned out well. The "ice cream" was made with a shimmery paper and I added white gel pen stitch lines for an extra little accent. The cone was put through my Big Shot with an embossing folder for the "waffle cone" texture. I sponged some light brown ink for contrast. I added some sequins for "sprinkles". The card opens up. It is 2 cones joined at the top. A spiral clip & small scrap of ribbon finishes it off.Thanks for looking! TTFN!
