Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card


Hello and welcome!  I hope you are having a terrific Thursday!
Today's card was so much fun to create!  It was inspired by Global Design Project's Challenge 288
This challenge was to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the chosen designer's card.  
Manuela's card is so cute, isn't it!?

This challenge immediately brought the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set to mind.  I started by adding patches of color to the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with the wide Water Painter.  
Then, I dipped the smallest Water Painter in a bit of Coastal Cabana ink in the Stampin' Pad lid and used it to flick small dots of paint over the card front. 

The ice cream and sentiment were stamped on scraps of Basic White Cardstock.  
I used the Ice Cream Punch to punch out ice cream and cone.  Then fussy cut around 'Happy Birthday' with my Paper Snips.  The ice cream and sentiment were attached using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the finishing touch, I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the front of the card in strategic (a.k.a. random) places.  

 Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 3-3/4" x 5", and 2-1/2" x 6" (envelope flap - optional)
Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper ~ 3-3/4" x 5"
Basic White ~ scraps and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
