'I scream, you scream, we all scream' - part 2

Whilst making the 'ice cream cone' card last week, I also made this one - using the same free gift set from Die Cutting Essentials magazine, Issue 13 (July 2016):
I used:

- 4.25" x 5.5" white card blank, tent style

- covered the front of the card blank with a panel of SU's 'Pool Party' card which had been trimmed to just slightly smaller than the card front

- next used a piece of SU's 'Soft Suede' to emboss a wafer pattern, using the embossing folder from the same set that the dies came with and trimmed it to just slightly smaller than the 'Pool Party' layer before gluing it in place

- I already had snippets of chocolate brown, cream and pink card for the ice cream whirls out on the desk so I added snippets of SU's 'Pool Party' and 'Soft Suede', plus a tiny snippet of red silk mirri card for the cherry and die cut all the elements I needed using that same little set of dies

- stamped the sentiment (again from the free set)  onto a piece of white card using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink, die cut it using a Spellbinders Labels 2 die and embossed round the edge using a ball ended embossing tool (for speed and ease)

- glued the white panel in place on top of the embossed 'wafer' layer

- then assembled the ice cream sundae dish and contents using a mixture of Collall All Purpose glue in a Woodware Fine Liner bottle and little slivers of thin sticky pads - on the bottom part of the dish to lift it a bit and make the layers sit level

I have to be honest and say that the quality of the sentiment stamps isn't brilliant, even using the Misti. But, the rest of the set (dies and embossing folder) more than makes up for that.

  11. I love the extra bits of the set that you have used here Di, the background embossing and the pretty sundae dish, and your ice cream looks good enough to eat. I know what you mean about the stamps, especially the sentiments, which unfortunately quite often don't stamp very cleanly, but with your Misti it looks fine. x

  16. Scrumptious fun card Di. I found with some of the poorer quality sentiment stamps that if I stamp them in brighter coloured inks they looked much better (must be a trick of the eye) xx

  17. The waffle printed embossing folder is the bomb for this. Now I need some ice cream. *sigh*

  18. You are so good Di using all the goodies from the magazine already, mine are sitting in a little pile of things to use on the corner of my desk! Good job I've just eaten an ice cream as I might have had to go looking for one after seeing your super card!
