Fancy an Icecream???
The story behind this card is........Sophie & Lucy were invited to their friend Tabitha's birthday party
last Saturday evening. The brief for the card was that they wanted a card for their friend Tabitha, she isn't a Tomboy but she isn't girly either, so no flowers, lace or ribbons, last year we made her a tiger card as that is her nickname!
Anyway I racked my brains, then I asked the girls what the invitations were like, they said they didn't have one but the party had an Ice cream theme, so I sat and thought for a moment and then had a rummage in the craft room, I found some paper that had a waffly/biscuit texture to it but it was gold, but I turned it over and bingo!, the colour on the back was perfect, had this colour not have worked I would have used a piece of hessian/jute that I had.
I then used a Spellbinder die to cut the Happy Birthday sentiment and placed it alongside the cone,
I used a Tattered lace 'free' die (from a magazine), to cut the letters for Tabitha's name out of red card and popped it at the top of the card. The overall card was just about A5.
The whole card took about 1/2 hr - 45 minutes, so if you want a quick and easy card, that uses up some of your button mountain, here it is, it would also work with pink buttons for strawberry ice cream or brown chocolate.
I would love to hear what you think, I know it's not a fancy, pretty card, it uses no dies or fancy
Papers, but I think it works, something children would enjoy doing too.
Well that's another week closer to our retreat ladies, how are those 'jaunt jars' doing, mine has some
Die cut bits, some dust and a paper clip in it!!, I hope yours are doing better!
Oh before I go......mixed craft Saturday, please keep your crafts coming!
Love and hugs to each and everyone of you,
