If anyone is aware of who the credit should go to for this original idea, please let me know. I have had it in my crypt for many years, but it only saw the light of day recently.
To get the texture in the card I dragged out my trusty Cuttlebug and used the Swiss Dots for the background and then after cutting the triangles for the cones, used the Branches folder to get a waffle kinda feel. Very happy with the way it turned out!!
The ice cream is done with the SU Scallop Circle Punch (x2) and then followed the arch around to get the 'scoop'. I carried the polka dots through from the background in the paper which I got fm a bargain stack I got from Big W of all places.
These are so easy and so very effective, why don't you give one a go?
