Treat Yourself Mini Cards And Holder For The Pals Blog Hop


Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created “Birthday Bonanza” projects to inspire you to make for all of your family and friends. We hope you enjoy and are inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we all love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I decorated the 3 1/8" square acetate card box with the awesome Ice Cream Corner suite and added four 3" square cards to give a friend as a birthday gift this month.  We can always use some cute note cards to write our thank yous out after our birthday. My birthday is coming up on the 19th and I will have to have some of these too for thank you cards!
 I ran some Ice Cream Corner DSP around the box for a belly band. I also ran some white twine around several times and tied a bow. I stamped the ice cream scoop from Sweet Ice Cream set in Calypso Coral ink and the cone in Crumb Cake and punched out with the Ice Cream Cone builder punch. I added sprinkles in Blackberry Bliss and the waffle on the cone in Soft Suede ink. I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on white card stock and cut out with the Messages die. I punched out a scallop oval from the Double Oval punch in Bermuda Bay card stock. I finished it off with some rhinestones colored with a Calypso Coral Stampin Blends marker. 

Here are the four 3" square cards inside. I used Bermuda Bay, Purple Posy, Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron for the ice cream scoops. I cut the sentiments out with the little die in Stitched So Sweetly. These were fun to make and are so cute!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on March 10th when our theme will be “Cute Critters” where the design team will be sharing projects that will feature critters of all sorts to inspire you. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
