Ice Cream Cone card




I did this ice cream cone card for a challenge on Fantabulouscricut   # 18. I just recently stumbled on this blog and will be checking them out more soon.

This is a fun card to make. It did not turn out as expected at the beginning. I just tweaked things as I went. The goal was to make it a card using Sweet treats card function. I pretty much make A2 size cards, so for met to make one that was not a rectangle was a good challenge for me. That turned out pretty easy.

The cone was not the right fit, but we made it work. The scoops were the perfect size. The flavors are mint chocolate chip, vanilla carmel swirl, and chocolate with a cherry on top. I used UTEE on the ice cream and cherry to give them a shiny look that they have would normally have. Added diamond stickles to a part of th cherry. Cuttlebug Divine Swirls on the middle scoop of ice cream and the cone I used candy cane cuttlebug. I have seen som great embossing folders for the cone, I just don't own one.
