Half Panel Fun Fold Ice Cream Birthday Card

 I’m always looking for a fun fold or something other than the “usual” card fold, so I decided to go with this half panel card.  Although the front panel is more than “half” of the front, that’s what I decided to call it!  I used all of the elements from the Ice Cream Corner Suite that is in the January – June catalog.  I’m happy to say that the stamp set and the coordinating punch will be carrying over into the Annual Catalog next month, but the ribbon, sprinkles, and DSP will not be, so be sure to get those while they’re still available!

The card base was cut 5 1/2 x 7 and then scored at 4 1/4, with the shorter side being the front of the card.  The right side was the perfect size to fit the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.

The left side of the card has four layers — the base (Blackberry Bliss), a mat piece (Petal Pink), a second mat piece (Basic White), and the card front (Ice Cream Corner DSP).

The ice cream is made by stamping Petal Pink ink onto Petal Pink cardstock for strawberry ice cream, Old Olive Ink onto Old Olive Cardstock for pistachio ice cream (my FAVORITE), and So Saffron ink onto So Saffron Cardstock for vanilla ice cream.    All of the ice cream was then punched out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.  The cone was made by stamping Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock and then detailed with the hashtags inked with Soft Suede.  It was punched out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.  The sprinkles are little foam pieces from the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles, and the soft sheer ribbon is Black Berry Bliss Striped Ribbon.

When the card is opened, the “Happy Birthday” is very visible along the right side, and then there’s a small little sentiment reading “With Sprinkles on Top.”  Both are stamped in Blackberry Bliss.
