So sweet Sundae Card
Here is a card I made using Just Because Cards. I love how you can mix and match the images to make the cards your own. I wanted to make my own matching envelope so I started with the envelope cut using the fit to page feature then I used the same size for all of my other cuts. This way everything matched.
I knew I wanted to use the sundae image but there isn't a coordinating card with this button so I flipped through the handbook and found a card base I liked (the gingerbread cookie card), chose a coordinating envelope and went from there.
Using the fit to page feature and a 12x12 piece of paper I cut my envelope. The measurements ended up being 6 3/4 inches. I cute my card base and layer at 6 3/4 inches as well.
I decided to try cutting the sundae at 6 3/4 inches too. I wasn't sure if this cut would coordinate with a card size or cut true to size as it didn't have a specific card associated with it. It turns out the sundae cuts true to size so my 6 3/4 inch sundae was huge.
I didn't want to waste paper so I worked around the large size by cutting off the very top stem and leaf layer of the sundae. I just left the cherry on top.
I ran my ice cream layer and card layer through the cuttlebug to add texture. I also added a piece of ribbon around the card layer.
To finish off the card I added stickles to my ice cream for some sparkle and some glossy accents to my cherry.
The sentiment is from a studio g dollar stamp set from Micheal's.
I am a SAHM to three beautiful girls. I am obsessed with scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just recently have started to dabble in digital scrapbooking. My software of choice is Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus 3.0. My other interests are camping, hiking, running, photography, and spending time with my family and friends.
