Today I would like to share with you my card which features the Ice Cream Dream – June 2015 Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout June for $27 or for just $5 when you spend $75. This is a very "sweet" stamp set.
I am a Type 2 diabetic so I don't have lots of photos of me eating ice-creams cause that's on my "do not eat" list but I LOVED the saying on the stamp set "You are my Happy" so I decided to make an anniversary card for my husband a little bit early (our 15th Wedding Anniversary is in July so I'm prepared early!!). I know the other Blog Hop consultants will have lots of ice-cream cuteness for you so you'll have lots of sweet ideas for the rest of the stamp set! I know someone who had an ice-cream truck come to their wedding reception so this stamp set would be PERFECT for those photos.
To make my card I cut a 12" X 12" Colonial White Cardstock in half so I made a 6x6 sized card. I cut a section of Blossom Paper and then backed it in Kraft Cardstock.
I loaded the title stamp You are My Happy from the Ice Cream Dream – June 2015 Stamp of the Month with Cocoa Exclusive Ink™ then I wiped off the scroll edges because they were too long for my pennant title and stamped it on my peice of Colonial White Cardstock.
I also matted that with the Kraft Cardstock.
The You're Pretty Awesome tag stamp came from the Limited Edition Host Rewards Stamp from the Seasonal Expression Catalogue 2, its called "Tagged with Love" code C1614. Its not available for sale so I can't tag it. You can only earn it by hosting a gathering. You can view the Seasonal Expressions Catalogue online here. This stamp set is featured on page 4.
then the "You're pretty Awesome" in Cocoa Exclusive Inks™ to match the You are My Happy title. The tag parts are seperate pieces so your tags can really be any size you wish. I then fussy cut them out with my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors because I made it while I was on camp and didn't want to go to the other room to cut the tags out. After I cut them out I then layered them on the Kraft cardstock and fussy cut them out too. I poked a hole through with my scissors for the Kraft Cardstock tie (it was just a narrow slice of kraft cardstock that I tied). Then I layered the two tags together and adhered them with some Thin 3-D Foam Tape to the card.
I'm very happy with how it turned out. I may cut a Cricut number 15 out and adhere to the Blossom paper under the title before I give it to him for our anniversary but thats the only change I might make.
The size of the 6x6 inch completed card is perfect to write a big long love letter to my husband (just don't tell him I told you that!). It would also make a great birthday card to a close friend as well. When its done I will pop it in one of my 6” X 6” Colonial White Envelopes.
Remember this great stamp set Ice Cream Dream – June 2015 Stamp of the Month is only available throughout June from your Close to My Heart Consultant.
