Ice Cream Swirl Valentine Cards for Sagan and Hazel

Valentine's Day kind of crept up on me.  I needed to make a couple cute cards for the granddaughters and I needed something I could make rather quickly.  I've been meaning to use the Ice Cream Swirl bundle.  It was right there on my table.  Here's what I came up with.

Ice Cream Swirls bundle  Card Duo  Most Adored DSP  Perennial Lavender DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Pretty cute!  Pink is for Sagan and the purple is for Hazel.

The base for this card is Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.  Cut 1 1/4 inches from the front of the card.

The Most Adored Designer SeriesPaper is perfect for the card.  This paper is part of the choices for Sale-a-Bration.  For the front the paper is cut at 2 3/4 x 5 1/4.  For the right side of the inside of the card the paper measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/4. 

For the ice cream cone, use the dies from the Ice Cream Swirl bundle.  The die will cut for two of the cones, so I was able to use that for both of the cards.  Cut from Crumb Cake card stock.

Stamp the cone using Pecan Pie ink.  Use a Blending Brush to add a little color across the top, bottom and a little down the side.

The ice cream was stamped on yet another paper from Most Adored in Flirty Flamingo.  Color every other space with a Light Flirty Flamingo Blend.  I have to give credit to the ice cream here to Patty Bennett, my upline.  Cut out the ice cream with the dies.

Glue the ice cream to the cone.  The white twine comes from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.  Tie the twine into a bow on the front.

Color some of the gems from the Opaque Faceted Gems with a Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend.  These are available for Sale-a-Bration choices as well.

The saying is from the Bee Mine Valentine stamp set.  Cut this out with the Stylish Shapes dies.  The heart is punched with the Bee Builder Punch.

This card is pretty much the same.  The front paper is from the Most Adored DSP.  The ice cream and the side panel purple pieces are from the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper.

The ice cream is cut out in Highland Heather.  The more detailed die is cut from the Perennial Lavender.  Glue that to the ice cream base.

Embellishments are Glossy Dots.

Here is the inside of the card.

As I write this, the girls have not yet received their cards.  I think they will like them.
