I had this cutie PI girl coloured up (her dress is paper pierced) so thought it'd be fun to make my own ice cream cone shaped card to put her on and am really pleased with the result even if I do say so myself :)
I doodled on a 7"x5" piece of paper to make my ice cream template until I was happy with it (I just used the cone in the image as my guide to what it should look like). Then I just cut that out as my template and made my ice cream card as follows; 1. folded brown card and cut out whole ice cream template to create my base, (the fold is along the top). 2. Traced the ice cream part onto pink card (pearlescent so nice and shimmery) and cut that out slightly smaller. 3.Traced the cone part onto beige card, cut that out slightly smaller then embossed lines onto it to give it the wafer look. 4. cut brown strip of card to create the flake and cut slit in the pink card to slot it in. 5. Assembled as shown and added faux stitching, the sprinkles and sentiment then finally the cute PI girl.
Shall leave you with another photo of my card with the various templates I cut out to use. The flake bit slides in and out so that it fits into a 5x7 envelope.
