Who doesn't love icecream? Even if it's just super cute cool treat stamps and/or dies?!!
For the background on my card, I die cut some Doodlebug In Color 6x6 patterned paper using the largest scallop SSS Frames die (keeping on the inside rounded rectangle piece). I also die cut a piece of vellum keeping the same rounded rectangle to layer over the top of the patterned paper. I like muting the patterned background to help soften the vibrancy of the design. I die cut the scalloped border several times from white cardstock and layered them one of top of another for a dimensional look.
I used the inlay technique by die cutting the SSS Ice Cream Parade Die ice cream cone outline from white cardstock and filled in the outline with colorful icre cream created by die cutting multiple colors of SSS Cardstock.
To give the ice cream some "texture" I used the sprinkles stamp from the SSS Cupcake Party Stamp Set and the same SSS Ink Colors as the cardstock (for a tone on tone look). I added detail with my favorite white pen.
For the banner greeting I die cut the larger banner using the SSS Sketchy Banners Die and then inked up the individual words in the phrase from the SSS More Sketchy Banners Greetings with SSS Ink Colors by masking off the words between inking with post it tape then stamping on smooth white cardstock. I stamped the border from SSS More Sketchy Banners Greetings with SSS Doll Pink Ink and popped the greeting up with foam adhesive under the ice cream cones.
