Yummy Ice Cream Cone Thank You Card

Sometimes it's no fun at all when I want to get my craft on in the studio but I gotta get loads o' laundry done! Today happens to be that day to do it...otherwise no one will have clean socks to wear the next day!

I needed to get a quick and simple thank you card out in the mail the other day and this is what I came up with:


The weather was a bit overcast when I took my pics so you may not see all the details. I took a cream card base and randomly stamped tiny flowers all over the front. I colored the cute girl holding the tall ice cream cone separately on white cardstock, paper-pieced her dress using the cutest cherry blossom patterned cardstock ever from Paper Garden, cut the entire image out and attached it to the solid cream oval.


I used different colors of Spica Glitter pens for all the scoops of ice cream...gotta make them sparkle, ya know!


Since this card was for a crafty person, I repeatedly stamped the paint can and brushes images with two coordinating colors for the inside of the card.  I think stamping one a different color gives an added interest and draws your eye to it.


I finished the front of the card up using thin cotton yarn I found in the knitting section of the craft store.  I  tied it around the cover a few times and tied a bow. I like using this yarn sometimes because the weight of it is a little thicker than baker's twine that seems to be popular these days.

Well, I'm off to start another load of laundry...I'll be back when I fold the last shirt!

Thanks for stopping in!

  3. A while back I was looking for a thank you card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
