my favorite part of this card is how dimensional the scoops of ice cream are! recently i saw (i wish i could remember where, to give credit!) a fabulous card with really puffy, dimensional clouds on it; to get the look the brilliant cardmaker had stuffed them very lightly with cotton!!! it turns out to be a simple process and it pays off BIG-TIME on your card!
here's what you do:
sketch your scoops: use the back of your paper, and don't cut yet; the edges want to rip during the distressment process, so leave a little margin of extra paper
distress your scoops: i dampened mine and crumpled them multiple times; when they were dry i sanded the raised bits from different directions till i had a nice random pattern...when i was completely done, i cut the shapes out and inked the edges
stuff your scoops: apply small dots of foam tape around the entire edge of your scoop, then cup the edges up a bit so you have a little hollow which you can then fill with a bit of fluffed up cotton ball; position the scoops on top of each other, adjusting the stuffing as necessary.
et voila: a sugar-free treat that won't melt no matter how hot it gets!
