Over the weekend, my family got to celebrate my lovely sister’s 43rd birthday! We had a fun evening filled with good food and laughter. We enjoyed a delicious cake from our local bakery decorated in pink and orange roses, which also matched the napkins and roses on the table.
And here is the “ice cream cone” birthday card I made for her. The card base and the shimmery pink mat were cut from Just Because Cards at 7 inches. I used small pearl embellishments to highlight the mat against the 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 kraft paper. I then added “Happy Birthday” paper trimmed to fit on top of the pink frame.
I cut the “vanilla” ice cream and cone at 4 inches from Straight from the Nest. The cone is embossed with a Sizzix Damask folder and highlighted with brown ink. I also inked the edges of the vanilla ice cream and embossed it with a Cuttlebug D’vine Swirls folder. The swirls are highlighted with Stardust stickles. I found some left over number beads in my stash and thought it would be cute to incorporate her birthday age into the card as a keepsake. I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching around the mat and to add light reflection to the cherry. The card is finished with a bow and button.
The envelope was cut from Just Because Cards at 7 inches using the same cardstock as the card base (white with flecks of color). I used a Happy Birthday rub-on for the envelope.
