So, onto my project details:
|Click on the photo to see it enlarged for detail.|
My card is an unusual size. It's 10 inches tall, and it's 4 and 1/4 inches wide when folded. Basically I folded a full 8 and 1/2 by 11 sheet in half the long way, and cut an inch off the bottom. I was going to use the full sheet, but I felt this size fit my image a little better.
The ice cream sundae was cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge at 10 inches.
The glass is cut from a really cool paper that is sort of pealized and it's a lavendar color. I added some Diamond Stickles for an accent.
The pink layer is embossed with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug Folder.
The brown layer is completely covered in Glossy Accents and I added real sprinkles.
The top piece of whipped cream was embossed with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. There was a cherry in the original design, but I decided not to use it.
I had cut the banner along the bottom, and I made it wavy by curling it around a pencil. The sentiment on it is stamped from a Hero Arts set called Cupcakes.
This box was cut from Tie the Knot at 8 inches.
All I did to embellish it was add little dots of Glossy Accents and put real sprinkles over them. It did take a little time and patience, but I think it's a fun little detail that makes this project unique.
