So this was posted on Simon's Instagram this morning - and it totally reminded me that I had sketched out a card idea for Simon's Picture Book Ice Cream Cone wafer die. So I pulled out my supplies and got to making it while it was still National Ice Cream Day (tho really shouldn't it be that every day?).
This is a 3.75" x 8.5" card (fits in a standard size 10 business envelope)
I die cut the Ice Cream Cone multiple times from Bristol Smooth card stock, then used a ton of Distress Oxide inks and sponged them onto all the pieces.
I used Simon's Clouds for Days stencil on the card base (also made from Bristol Smooth card stock), and the Happy Birthday Script wafer die for the sentiment.
I die cut the back half of the Happy Birthday sentiment multiple times and stacked them together in order to adhere the sentiment over the ice cream (as those were popped up with foam squares). I added 4mm Studio Katia Googly Eyes to the ice cream, and some SSS Groovy confetti to the background. The "My Sweet Friend" sentiment is from the CZ Design Hello You stamp set.
I finished off the inside of the card with sentiments from the CZ Design Birthday Palooza set that I inked up with several of the Oxide inks I'd used on the ice cream and that was it!
