Hello, Simple Stories friends! Shellye here today... I'm glad to be back with you and kick off the month of July with some I HEART SUMMER goodies!
I love all of the different shapes of chipboard that you can find these days. While browsing my local scrapbook store I picked up several pieces, two of which were a 'flower' and 'pennant' shape...the two came together to make the cutest ice cream cone!
Putting this together was as easy as tracing the shapes onto selected I Heart Summer papers and then cutting out. I did machine stitch around the edges after adhering, but this is definitely optional.
I embellished the ice cream portion with a cut-out from one of the 4X6 Journaling Card Elements. Before attaching (with foam tape) to the ice cream, I glued a trim of ric-rac around the edge of the heart...I love the softness that it adds! A couple of embellishments from the Chipboard Stickers and Layered Stickers and the front is complete.
For the hanger I used a thin gauged wire (a thicker gauge would work better, but I didn't have any on hand) and then knotted on different colorful ribbons...now it's ready to hang!
SN@P Cuts! Wow, these are the coolest elements to work with! Here I used it as a mat for my card and added a background paper behind it. Yes, photographed it looks like a diagonally striped paper, but in person it has just the slightest bit of texture.
3X4 Journaling Cards are not only great for your SN@P albums, but they're a fantastic addition to cards...because Simple Stories' Journaling Cards are ALL so cute, the work is done for you. Here I just added the adorable Bicycle Layered Sticker and topped it with the matching Flair Icons. All done...short and sweet :)
