"Ice cream sundae" card

It must have been that I was hungry for ice cream that I made this ice cream sundae card. I used the "sweet treats" cricut cartridge (page 30) and cut all parts at 7.5 inches. It was pretty simple to layer up. I used my Cuttlebug as well, swiss dots, harlequin, floral fantasy, and d'vine swirl. I wanted to make the sundae cup look like a real cup, so I cut a page protector apart and placed it onto my Cricut cutting mat and cut out the "blackout" layer of the image. Next, I just cut off the ice cream portion and that left me with the "cup" portion. I adhered it to another "blackout" layer that I cut from cardstock and ran both pieces through my Cuttlebug giving me a "glass" look. The "sweet" stamp is from "simply sweet occasions" by My Pink Stamper. Thanks for visiting have a great day.
