So this card started with cutting and embossing the white cardstock out with my new nestabilities (oh I love those things!) I stamped the icecream stamps on the cardstock using versamark for the ice cream itself and gel-a-tins chocolate embossing powder - yum! Its not an overpowering smell but it is there! I also made a scalloped frame for them, at this point I chose orange - I just think it so refreshing for summer and I had already played around and decided that I would have chocolate ice cream and then the blue base card just seemed to make it come together. Then I went looking through my designer paper that I had bought ages ago and had never used - you know when you think its too good to use! and found this K&Company Brenda Walton Neopolitan paper - now how perfect is that! (I know you probably already knew about it!). I just then had to sort out a sentiment for the front and some ribbon and Voila!
