Ice Cream Truck Birthday Card

 I wanted to make a 'cool' card because it's just so-o-o hot!  I decided that an ice cream truck card would at least give me sweet small-kid-time memories. I started with an Avery Elle stamp and die sets.  The images were easy to color and the dies cut out the shapes perfectly.  I love, love, love the cute Doodlebug Designs printed papers from the 6x6 paper pad...so many sweet, refreshing designs. For added realism I applied Glossy Accents and sprinkles (from the resin dept. in BFC) to the frozen treats. Doodlebug Designs stickers and dots livened up the card (and covered up a couple of smudges)...LOL! 
 This card base was from a Doodlebug Designs set of assorted cards in pretty summer colors that I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  The dog and ice cream man were raised on foam dots and add to interest inside the card. To soften the words, I curved them on the acrylic block before stamping.
 I like that this card has a neat closure and lots of room to write a message.  Please check out all the summer crafting goodies at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  They are sure to help you make some 'cool' projects this summer.
