My nephew turned nine last week and I sent him some ice cream parlor gift certificates. This card is a great "match" for such a gift. It was the first time I have used "Smooch Spritz." This first became available in the Summer Mini, and I've had it for over a month now! It worked beautifully with the Color Catcher, a sort of shield to keep only your project (not the wall or your pet!) "smooched!"
Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz (118772 - 4.95) and Color Catcher (121093 - 5.95)
For the ice cream swirls, I first stamped them in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, Very Vanilla Craft Ink, Daffodil Delight Classic Ink onto Whisper White card stock. I had the Chocolate, Vanilla and Lemon flavored cones I desired.
Then I leaned the scrap of paper they were stamped on against the back wall of the Color Catcher. I sprayed the Smooch Spritz in layers until I had the shimmer I was looking for.
The Smooch Spritz can be sprayed on very lightly or more heavily. You can adjust the look by layering it. I then cut the swirls out.
The cones were stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink onto Whisper White and also cut out. Sentiment was cut into a banner shape and anchored onto the card using a Craft/Crumb Cake corduroy brad.
All of the elements were centered onto a background of Soft Suede that I ran through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (119976 - $7.95). Card base is Daffodil Delight card stock.
I hope you enjoy looking. Please leave me your comments below. Today I am making a summer's worth of ice cream for my family to enjoy. I start out early in the morning, and by 4th of July we are cooling down with a few flavors of home made goodness! Stay safe!
