Ice Cream Cone Birthday

Isn't this adorable?? According to Joe, this is the cutest card I've ever made! I received my latest SU order yesterday and couldn't wait to play with my Crystal Effects! I've seen the idea of ice cream cones on SCS and decided to try it for myself! I had also seen the cone made using Big Shot texture plates, but since I don't have the texture plates, I decided to improvise and use a crimper. I think it worked! :) I also wish I would have moved the sentiment up a little bit, but oh well!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, and Kiwi Kiss Cardstock, and Bella Rose DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Crimper, Scalloped Circle Punch, Buttons, Ribbon, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Sticky Strip, Chocolate Chip Marker

1. Score 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock at 5 1/2 and fold on score line.
2. Adhere 4 x 5 1/4 piece of DSP.
3. Use your Big Shot to cut out a Top Note in Pink Pirouette. Do the same with the ribbon and adhere it to the pink Top Note using Sticky Strip.
4. Punch three scalloped circles and cut off half of the scallops to form the top of the "scoop". Adhere together as shown.
5. Run 3 x 1 1/2 piece of Creamy Caramel through a crimper twice in two different directions to form checked pattern. Cut into a triangle and adhere to ice cream pieces.
6. Use SU Chocolate Chip Marker to free hand draw fudge topping. Apply Crystal Effects and let dry.
7. To make the cherry I traced around a button and cut it out, but a 1/2 inch circle punch would work too. Cut a little divit in the top where stem will come out. Cut stem out of Kiwi Kiss and attach to cherry. Adhere to ice cream cone using Sticky Strip.
8. Adhere ice cream to card base.
9. Stamp sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink in bottom left corner of Top Note.
10. Cut small slivers of Kiwi Kiss cardstock and thread through buttons. Adhere buttons.


  1. Very cute indeed. Crystal effects is so cool.

  2. How did you do the crystal effects? Did you tint it with a re-inker or just put it over the chocolate chip color? I think that is the color...opps if it isn't...

  3. guess I should read huh?????????????
