This is an adorable card and so very easy to make! It looks like those yummy orange creamsicles that I always enjoyed eating as a kid. Brings back good memories! You could make this same card in other "ice cream flavors" as well. Imagine a fudge bar or strawberry bar. Oooh yummy!
I've seen a lot of these ice cream bar cards around but I cased my version of this card from Patty Bennett. She has a great tutorial on the card size and how exactly to make it here.

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Sets - Tart & Tangy and Sweet Hello

  • Papers - Only Orange, Yo Yo Yellow and Whisper White card stocks

  • Inks - Only Orange Ink Pad and Yo Yo Yellow Stampin' Write marker

  • Embellishments - Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain ribbon

  • Tools - Horizontal Slot punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Scallop punch, Corner Rounder, Dimensionals and a Craft/Popsicle Stick

It is a little hard to tell from my picture, but the top right corner of the card is suppose to look like a bite has been taken out of it.

Also the inside white card stock piece is mounted on the inside with dimensionals.

The yellow strip on the ribbon was colored with the Yo Yo Yellow Stampin' Write marker. A simple but nice touch, don't ya think?

This is another one of the cards that we made at the Mystery Hostess party a couple of weeks ago. I've got one more card to show you that we made at that is a card in the shape of a flip flop. Maybe I''ll post that tomorrow along with some of the beautiful pictures from the beach from my "mini" beach trip!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend! Did you fit any stamping in?

Happy Stampin'
