Sweetest Week - Day 1

June 25, 2018




I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!  Here's 'Sweetest' from the Avery Elle Summer release together with the coordinating dies.



I let my ice creams take centre stage for this card.  I kept the card background super simple and I just embossed using two of the border dies from Dotted Borders twice over to make a little background definition.  On smooth watercolour cardstock I very lightly stamped the images in distress ink then I watercolour painted them for a no-line affect.



Once painted I applied glue to certain points and dipped them into chunky glitter to pick up 'ice crystals'.  The orange/yellow/red ice pop had glue added to the top portion and it was dunked into micro-beads with the addition of more glue and chunky glitter on top of that!  These features were applied to the base with dimensional foam tape.  I felt the card needed no extra embellishment so I finished off by stamping the sentiment.



I thank you for stopping by today to see how this card was made .... I hope you 'lick' it!

Such an appealing, super cute summer card. I love your attention to detail and the CAS approach you took to your white background. The addition of the micro beads and glitter to the ice pop really brings the focal point to the treats and doesn't in any way deter from it. The sentiment is also perfect as is your no line watercolouring. Wow, an amazing card!
