Love you more than ice cream -February designer Challenge

Its that time again, it’s time for the February Karen Burniston designers challenge. This months challenge is all about Love. We were given the option of a Valentine, wedding or anniversary card. I decided to go with a Valentine. When making a Valentine for my hubby I try to stay a way from pink, I found this purple and blue striped paper from my stash so I went with it. Ice cream is our guilty pleasure so I thought it would be fun to use the Ice-cream sundae pop-up dieset.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

A-this is a square card, dimensions below ⬇️

B- I cut the layers, the striped I cut 4 and the purple I cut 3 dimensions below ⬇️

The die for the ice cream pop up, is a cut in die, it cuts into the card. I didn’t want to cut into the card base so I did this instead…

C- I cut out a piece of cardstock, slightly bigger than the die. And I scored it as if it was the card base. And die cut.

D- the little piece of cardstock that comes out is used as a support for the stem

E- work all the folds to pop out the all the sections of the mechanism (video will be posted at the bottom of post) I added a piece of the purple paper behind the opening in the pop up.

F- this is the back of the the mechanism

G- fold mechanism, line up with the score line in the card and as adhesive to the top, close the card

H- I rotated the card so this is now the bottom. Keep the mechanism closed, add adhesive and close, attaching the mechanism to the bottom.

I- I measured the space needed to cut out the back ground to fit around the mechanism.

J- I trimmed the piece that came out so I can add it in so the border will go all the way around the square.

K- add the backing and the piece of border

L- I did the same for the bottom

M- diecut and assemble the ice cream scoops, and the bowl, all from the same diet. I used Versa Mark ink to give the bowl a 2 toned effect. Add them to the mechanism.

N- I did a little word surgery to make the greeting, I cut out the “Happy Valentine’s Day” then the end of Valentine for the “e” I used. The “H” and “y” from Happy to make the word “Hey”

O- I cut some squares for the front, I used the Cross Hatched squares for the polka dot paper and the smaller purple square (I have the photos reverse below)

P- I cut out hearts from all the papers used using the hearts from the Heart collage die set

Q- I added a shadow to the “Hey Valentine” and added it and the hearts to the front.

R- die cut “You”re Sweet” and gave it a shadow.

S- using the Short Rectangles cross hatch I die cut a message block.

T- I added the elements as well as a silver die cut spoon from the ice cream set.

U- I added hearts a clear plastic drops to the inside and some drops to the outside. I diecut “love you” and hand wrote “more than icecream”

Diecuts used are….
