Wobbly Cricut Die Cut Thank You Card

Our chiropractor was nice enough to give us a gift card to Serendipity, a local ice cream shop here at Webster Groves, St. Louis, Missouri. My sons enjoyed the treat. To show how much we appreciated his kindness, I created this card with ice cream as theme, too.

I cut the image from Cricut Simply Charmed cartridge. I cut the ice cream cone in layers using cardstock. With the ice cream layer, I applied white Wendi Vecchi embossing paste. I didn't apply the paste smoothly to achieve the texture of ice cream. I applied American Crafts Grapefruit embossing powder. I set this aside to dry. I am not sure how long it took for this to dry but I left it overnight. After which, I heat embossed it. I adhered the layers using Ranger Multi-Matte Medium glue.

For the back layer which was cut in white cardstock, I stamped stripes using Simon Says Basic Stripes stamp set. The ink I used is Avery Elle Raspberry pigment ink. I adhered 1/8" double sided tape over the stripes. I poured Elizabeth Crafts Designs Cool Diamond Silk powder over the tape. After I shook the excess, I rubbed the glittered strips with my finger. I inked the edge of the ice cream part on this layer with the same Avery Elle ink.

To work on the card base, I am using a kraft Bazzill cardstock. I am fortunate to have a Simple Stories Beat the Heat patterned paper from the Summer Days collection which has ice cream cones on the B-side. I actually bought this patterned paper because of my obsession with clouds, which is the A-side of this patterned paper. I die cut this patterned paper using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die. I also used the same set of dies to create a border rectangle on a pearlized paper. I also used this to die cut another kraft cardstock.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Altenew Label Love on kraft cardstock using  Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink. I poured white embossing powder to this, then heat set it. I trimmed off the excess. I traced the letters using a 0.3 Sepia Copic multiliner. I adhered this to the bottom of the innermost stitched rectangle. I applied a Darice Mini Action Wobbler to the back of the die cut ice cream. I adhered this on top of the sentiment.

I hope you enjoy viewing my blog. Thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed and brilliant day!
