On the 15th (or thereabouts ) of every month I'll be posting some fun themed party planning posts. Since this month's stamp of the month is "Ice Cream dream" it totally made sense to plan an "ice cream party" for June.
I saw a fun card on pinterest that looked like an Etch a Sketch so my card is based off of that using CTMH supplies:
Cut your red cardstock for a standard size card (8.5 x 5.5 inches.) Fold in half.
Use a corner rounder to round edges. Cut circles in 1.25 inch (1 1/4) size with either a punch or cricut. Cut a rectangle from the middle of the front of your red card (OR just cut a rectangle and adhere to the front of the card.) The size of your rectangle should be 3.25x 4.5. If you cut the rectangle OUT of the red, back with a whisper cardstock in 4x5.25 size.
Use slate ink to stamp "party time" and an ice cream cone.
At the top of the card, in versamark ink, stamp "you are invited". Add white embossing powder to the words, brushing off any excess. Use a heat gun to melt and set the powder.
Add party details to the inside.
Once you've invited your guests... you need some décor:
You need a way to display some ice cream toppings...
I found these Strawberry baskets at Michaels- 10 to a pack on clearance at Michaels right after the new year... for under $2. I used 3, along with some pear green tissue paper to tie my colors together. Each was filled with some "loose" toppings like marshmallows, chocolate chips and peanuts.
The spoons were decorated with 3 strips of Ruby red Washi tape at the ends.
If you like to send your guests home with a party favor... here's a fun way to keep with the theme:
Pear cardstock, white cardstock and some shinhan markers with the Teacher Appreciation stamp set to write "thank you". I topped it off with the ice cream cone to coordinate with my invitation and banner from the Ice Cream Dream stamp set.
*** NOTE: Ice Cream Dream is the stamp of the month and ONLY available in June! $17.95 OR only $5 with a $50 purchase***
