This week I have lots of treats for you.  Ice Cream Treats that is!  I will be using the new Ice Cream Swirl Bundle from the Spring Mini Catalog.  It's making me want some ice cream, even though it has been very cold here in Michigan.

For my first card this week I chose to have a Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cone.  Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is one of my favorite flavors, so of course, I thought I would start with that first.

This bundle includes several dies and one of them makes a double cone that when folded in half makes the cone into a card base.  

This is what it looks like when the die cut is made.  There is a cone on the bottom and an upside down one at the top.  My cone was die cut from Crumb Cake cardstock, and then I used the same die again to cut just the bottom portion from Basic White cardstock to line the inside for my greeting.

Now that you hopefully understand how the cone card base was made, let's return to the front of the card.

I stamped my ice cream with Soft Sea Foam ink on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock and then used Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends to add some shading to provide some depth to the ice cream swirls.

There are also ice cream "embellishment" stamps like strawberries, cherries, a peppermint stick (or whatever that stick is), etc.  I gave my ice cream cone a strawberry and a peppermint stick.  I'm not sure that I have ever had either on my ice cream cones, but it needed a little color!

The sleeve around the bottom of the cone and the envelope flap were made with designer series paper from the BEE Mine Collection.  It reminded me of an awning you might see over the window of an old fashioned Ice Cream Parlor.

What do you think of this card?
