Here's a little backstory: My friend (& Eyelet Outlet chief) Suzanne Marchesano's mom, Irene Pond, turned ninety a couple of weeks ago. Her kids had been planning a big celebration, naturally, but then this whole fun CoVid19 thing happened instead, and Mrs. Pond's adult community went into lockdown. So Suzanne hit upon the idea of the card-equivalent of a surprise party, and put a call out to papercrafters via FaceBook in hopes of getting *90* greetings sent to her mom. But, nope, that didn't happen. Apparently, Mrs. P. received over 150 cards from all over the country! The local paper even wrote a little feature! This is the sort of story I love to hear, and it confirms my belief that crafters are some of the kindest people in the world.
Of course I wanted to participate, so I texted Suzanne for a few "hints" to personalize my card. It turned out that Mrs. P. and I share a deep and abiding love for frozen desserts, and as soon as I heard that, I knew I wanted to make a big card with a Nancy Standlee-style collaged ice cream cone. This is a great SOS project, because all of my papers were scraps. The cone is made of paper strips and some fun Eyelet Outlet Tapes. The strawberries are a discontinued brad style that I still love. I finished off with Round Sequin sprinkles and a scatter of tiny Star Sequins in the background.
