Happy Birthday Ice Cream Cone

 Just a quick card I did for a 5th birthday party this weekend.  The theme of the party was ice cream sundaes so I thought the cone would be close enough!  This one came together pretty fast once I decided what to do.

  First, I ran the Whisper White panel through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Someday soon I promise to show a card without using an embossing folder! And then I used the ticket corner punch so this layer wouldn't be too boring.

  To make the cone I first cut a triangle out by hand using So Saffron cardstock.  I ran this piece through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Then I sponged the edges and a little bit in the middle with More Mustard ink.

  The ice cream scoops were punched out with the scallop circle punch and the lower third of the circles were snipped off.  The Chocolate Chip scooped was stamped with the sprinkles from Sweet Scoops using Chocolate Chip ink.  The Pink Pirouette scoop was sponged along the edge with Pink Pirouette ink.  I topped the cone with a 'cherry'.  After not doing much with buttons in the past I'm beginning to really like them-- Now to just get the other 3 color collections!

  Of course I needed to have a happy birthday somewhere so I stamped the sentiment from Fundamental Phrases in Chocolate Chip and punched it out with the large scallop punch and layered it on a Pink Pirouette scallop oval.  A band of striped Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon (retired) behind the cone & sentiment finish this sweet card for a sweet birthday girl.

Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
