Cool Treats for Birthdays

Here's another card I created for swaps.  It uses the Cool Treats Bundle in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.

I started out with a sketch for this design, plus I KNEW I wanted to have a metal ice cream bowl and spoon!  Since I was designing this for a swap, I needed to make multiples.  I was dreading the number of times I needed to crank the Big Shot!

However, since these pieces are so small, you can get just about everything on the platform and only need a couple cranks per card!  

Colors in the card are Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, and Silver Foil.

I also had to add some Wink of Stella.  One does want a hint of glitter!

Sequins are attached by adding some fine-tip glue to the card and then placing the sequins on top of the glue.

The mess of thread is from the Pool Party Satin Ribbon - threads pulled apart from the ribbon.

Anyone else have a craving for ice cream with chocolate on top?
