This card features a bunch of products from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog and the new Diagonal Score Plate.  The Diagonal Score Plate was used to create the waffle background on the Soft Suede piece.

There is a strip of Designer Series paper from the Sweet Shop collection.  I used the Label Framelits to create the Pool Party  label.  The yummy ice cream cone is from the Mouthwatering stamp set.  There are a couple of different things going on with the ice cream cone.  The cone is colored first with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker and then thumped with the Soft Suede marker – that gives it the different shades of color.  The ice cream was colored with the Calypso Coral marker and then I put a drop of Versamark ink on it and spread it around to cover the ice cream – sprinkle with the Cherry Scented Embossing Powder and heat set.  I know you can’t smell my blog post but if you could smell the card in real life it smells like cherries. The cone is cut out and added on the label with dimensionals.

There is also one of the Jelly Bean brads right by the label.  and the greeting punched out with the decorative label punch  – I thought this one was perfect – “Happy birthday with a cherry on top!”.

I did tie some Calypso Coral ribbon that came from the Sale-A-Bration ribbon&brad pack onto this card – I thought it finished it off quite well.  This card was based on something I saw at leadership.

Have a sweet day!
