Ice Cream Corner Shaker Card

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.

Today, I’d like to share with you a card that’s had me shaking for days! The weather is really starting to warm up here in North Texas and it’s the perfect time of year for some ice cream! The delicious pint of Blue Bell that I picked up from the store in combination with the ice cream truck making his first rounds of the season was my inspiration for this card.

As far as I’m concerned, you’re NEVER too old for ice cream and this is the perfect card for kids, grandkids or anyone who just simply loves ice cream as much as I do.

*Meaurements*

Cardbase 4 1/4″ ×11″ scored at 5 1/2″

Matte Base 4″×5 1/4″ (×2)

DSP 1″×4″ and 1/4″×3 1/2″

Scraps of Basic White for stamping

*Other Useful Tools*

Stampin’ Trimmer

Take Your Pick Tool

Clear Envelopes

*Instructions*

I punched the scraps of Basic White Cardstock out using the Ice Cream Builder Punch and stamped them in their colors.

I trimmed the DSP using my Stampin’ Trimmer and adhered them to the Matte Base using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.

I stamped the “happy birthday” sentiment in Pool Party.

Before I adhered the ice cream cones in place I arranged them and glued the cones down first using Mini Glue Dots and then added Stampin Mini Dimensionals to the ice cream scoops and arranged them in place and sticking them down.

I slide the Matte Base and sprinkled in some of the Ice Cream Sprinkles Embellishments and sealed the clear plastic envelope.

*Tip*

The clear plastic envelope is designed for the Cardbase already attached so it’s slightly bigger than our Matte Base. When you slide it in, make sure that the Matte Base is all the way over to one side. We’ll address that extra plastic in the next step.

*Instructions Continued*

Now that the envelope is sealed and your toppings aren’t going to escape. Fold the excess plastic over and use a piece of Tear and Tape to secure it to the back of the Matte Base. Then you’re going to want to put three additional pieces of Tear and Tape to the back of the envelope.

Carefully remove the backing from the Tear and Tape (you don’t want to accidentally poke a hole in your clear plastic envelope) using your Take Your Pick Tool and adhere it down to the front of your Cardbase.

For the inside base I stamped the “hope it’s sweet” sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you’ll join me again soon for another edition. Until then – Happy Stampin’ Everyone!
