Triple Dip Ice Cream Hinge Card Tutorial - and blog candy!!!!

As promised, here is the tutorial to make my triple dip ice cream cone card.

1109KHIceCreamConeWithACherryONTop

I used:

Spellbinders™:

S4-275

Nested Ice Cream Cone

S4-266

Assorted Fresh Fruit

I2-1007

Diamond and Stars Impressabilities™

I2-1003

Snowflake Impressabilities™

Copic Sketch Markers: E13, G19 and the Airbrush system.

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Garden Green

Dark pink brads (unknown)

Signo White Gel Pen

Print invitation information onto neutral cardstock, being sure to leave enough room between each paragraph for the dies. I print it on computer paper and align the dies to be sure it fits before printing onto my cardstock.

Cut/emboss each scoop.

ice cream 2

Cut/emboss largest cone from Creamy Caramel cardstock. Leave in die and emboss using Diamond and Stars Impressabilities™ , then airbrush with Copic E13 marker.

Glue printed scoops onto cone.

As an optional step, you may wish to trace the card onto another piece of cardstock and back the whole thing for more stability.

ice cream 6

Cut/emboss 2 of the largest scoops from neutral Ivory Cardstock. Attach several brads to the embossed scoop, saving the space for the one that will act as the hinge. (bottom left). Glue the other large scoop to the back of the embossed scoop to cover the backs of the brads.

Poke hole through all layers (the scoop with all the brads, the backing scoop and the printed one for the inside of the card) for the hinge brad and attach that brad. This creates the hinge. (The purple is an old mouse pad I use when using my paper piercer.)

ice cream 8

Cut/emboss chocolate scoop and strawberry scoop and emboss with Snowflakes Impressabilities™ the same way I used the Diamond and Stars Impressabilities™ on the cone. Carefully align these scoops with the back printed cone and scoops so that they line up perfectly.

ice cream 9

Cut/emboss cherry from red cardstock. Cut/emboss 2 cherry dies from green cardstock. Leave one in die and airbrush with Copic G19.

ice cream 10

Cut red cherries from their stems and glue over green cherries on airbrushed green stem. Glue other green cherries to the back of the first to provide more stability. Cut off the one cherry with the leaf on the stem. Attach to top of ice cream. Add highlights to cherry with white gel pen.
