Blackberry Bliss card stock: 5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″ along the 8.5″ side, 2.5″ x 2.5″ for scalloped circle
Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4″ x 5.25″; punch ice cream scoop and cone from the DSP
Basic White card stock: 4″ x 5.25″, 2.25″ x 2.25″ for circle
Metallic Edge Ribbon: 25″

Sweet Ice Cream

To make this card, I placed the DSP with the side I wanted facing on the outside of the card facing the envelope flap, and put it in the 5 3/4″ x 4 3/8″ clear envelope. Then I folded the envelope toward the back along the 5.25″ inch side of the cardstock, as close to the cardstock as possible. Apply scotch tape along the fold to hold it in place from edge to edge (see Figure 1)

Then I added about 5 pinches of my favorite sequins to the envelope front (the side with the pattern to face the front of the card). Then I took off the seal for the envelop and closed the envelope tight against the cardstock.

Next I wrapped the ribbon around the envelope and tied a bow to the right hand side of the card. Next I used Tear & Tape on the the back of the envelope and adhered to the front of the cardstock. Next I adhered with dimensionals the sentiment on the Basic White circle to the front of the card with a coordinating scalloped circle, leaving room to the left to add the punched ice cream cone. I added a few of the ice cream corner sprinkles to the front of white circle. Then the front is done and ohh so festive!

All that remains is the inside of the card. The stamp set provides so many fun stamps to decorate with. Here I used just the ice cream scoop and the cone, however the stamp set offers so much more. The stamp set has sprinkles, melted ice cream accents, popsicles and adorable coordinating sentiments. “You melt My Heart” is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy this stamp set as much as I do!
