Sending Sweet Wishes Your Way!

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Being a brand new month it's time to introduce a new challenge hostess which is Kathleen Adams.

Apparently today is “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast” day! So put a dessert on your card today.  It doesn’t have to be ice cream.

About a month before Christmas one of the local stores had a 40% off sale of everything in store. My hubby took me up and while I was there I found three Colorado Craft Company Big & Bold stamps on the shelf. As these are normally expensive down here in Australia, with 40% off they were a must buy .... so I added these to my basket and sent them off to Santa!

This stamp set is Colorado Craft Company's Sweetest Birthday Cone stamp set. This is a large stamp set, the ice cream itself is approximately 7 inches tall, so my card is 7 1/2 inches.

I used the birthday sentiment included in the set for the left hand side of the card. I stamped this onto white cardstock using black ink and then used the largest label die from the Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I die cut another two labels from pink cardstock and cut them in the middle vertically and horizontally and adhered this behind the white label.

As you can see I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I stamped the "Celebrate You!" sentiment directly onto the ice cream cone.

I kept the front of the card simple, seeing the focus is on the inside of the card. I stamped another of the sentiments from the stamp set onto white cardstock strip and layered some pink cardstock behind it and adhered it to the lower portion of the front of the card.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
