I made this card for a couple challenges, and I just went nuts with the embossing! *LOL*
The two challenges I am entering this in are:
Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge Me Monday - Sweet Shop
The challenge was to incorporate something sweet in your project.
My Creative Time - Imagine Nation Monday Challenge - Sweet/ Valentine
Besides the theme you must use an Imagine if you own one. Since I don't own one I didn't use one. Emma sweetly allows those of us who don't have one to still participate :)
I used a standard sized card base in a vanilla color - this one opens from the top. I embossed the top portion of the card with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The ice cream cone was cut from Sweet Treats at 3.5 inches.
I embossed it with 3 different Cuttlebug folders. Oriental Weave for the cone, Spots and Dots for the pink ice cream, and D'vine Swirl for the chocolate topping - although that part didn't photograph well it is visible in person. I covered the chocolate topping with Glossy Accents to make it shiny. Before it started to dry I added these little dew drops for sprinkles.
For the bottom portion of the card I used some pretty stitched satin ribbon. I cut a tag from A Child's Year at 1 inch. Then I stamped a sentiment from a Hero Arts set called Cupcakes. I added a little pink glittered brad. I rounded the 2 bottom corners on a 1/2 inch setting with my Corner Chomper. The last touch was some light pink stitching along the bottom of the card.
Yummy! I am trying to participate in more challenges this year - I think these particular ones are making me hungry :)
