Ice Cream Hugs

My bestie isn’t a chocolate or cookie girl, so I can’t send her a Hershey bar or homemade chocolate chip cookies to show her I care. Her vice is ice cream, and *that* you unfortunately cannot ship 600 miles away and hope it will hold on a porch in the middle of Florida. Next best thing? An ice cream card!!!

The images are from Close To My Heart’s Ice Cream Dream stamp set. Once again I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the images and fussy cut them. I added Wink of Stella to the brightly colored areas, and then I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to several areas for a glossy look. The hugs sentiment is a Pink and Main die, cut twice and layered. It too has both Wink of Stella and Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I decorated the inside with the sentiment from the same stamp set. The paper pieced hill was cut with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slope die, though the stitching is hard to see in the pictures. As a final touch, I added an Action Wobbler to the little dog, who is very excited to get an ice cream cone!

Please indulge me with some close ups… I am really pleased with how this came out πŸ™‚
