Sprinkled With Fun Gift Bag Card Set

Yep, it's another Sweet Treats cut!

I love this ice cream cone and thought it would make a great gift bag and card set.

Supplies used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge
Bazzil Bling cardstock
Imaginisce paper stack
Drippy Goo paper punch
Spare Parts brads
Viva Pearl Pen - Ice White

The middle strip needed something on the card so I added some dots with the Pearl pen and I think it gave it just the little something extra to make the card pop. The sentiment is from Sweet Treats and it does have the layers to cut for it. I thought the words should match the ice cream, even if it isn't in the same order as the scoops on the gift bag *okie wonders if she is the only person that would notice such a thing*. I will admit I meant to punch some Drippy Goo strips for the card but forgot until after I had the cards put together and didn't want to go back and do them and take the card part to add them.

The ice cream cone is such a fun looking cut and I was trying to decide what "flavors" to use and figured the standard chocolate, vanilla and strawberry would be good. I think using the Bazzil bling cardstock gave it a nice sheen of icy goodness *okie cracks herself up sometimes with her dorky comments*.

I think the Drippy Goo punch added a cute touch to the gift bag and I used coordinating colors of the ice cream scoops. Oh and I filled in the areas on the pink scoop with the Pearl Pen.

Tomorrow will be my last gift bag card set, at least I think it will. We shall see!

  7. Aha! Argyle is the perfect Cuttlebug for the cone. I gave myself a headache last time I made this cut because a cone is one of those things everyone just KNOWS is textured and I couldn't decide which embossing folder to use ;)

    Thanks for sharing!!! I need to start stocking up on these quick "go to" birthday cards and bags.
