Ice Cream Cone Stand

Hello friends!  Welcome to this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. This week's challenge was chosen by one of our two new Design Team members, the very talented Janis! Janis has challenged us to create projects featuring the Sweets of Summer.  

Our Cuisinart Ice Cream maker has been getting quite a workout this summer.  I have made two batches of dreamy chocolate, a very large batch of the best fresh peach ice cream ever, Dole Whip (think Disney), and a sweet strawberry.  Doug, my mom, and I quite enjoying our homemade ice cream, which gave me the obvious Summer Sweet for the challenge.

I used five Cricut cartridges to create this card:The basic cart is from City People, with customization on the awning.  The scalloped circle cut is from Art Philosophy, though the word Cones was cut using MS Elegant Cake art. The Ice Cream banner is from MS Birthday Cakes and ice sickles I added to the card were cut using MS Seasonal Cakes. 

I assembled the card elements, finishing with white pen and baker's twine. The 6 x 6 inch card front was placed on an easel  card.  

Have you visited the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog yet this week?  The design team has created a wonderful selection of Summer Sweet projects.  I hope that you might join us this week and create your own summer sweets project.  We do love it when you play along.

  1. Oooh, I love this card! The ice cream cart really pops out of the card. It makes me feel cooler just to look at it. This card reminds me of one of my grand daughters birthday presents. She got this huge ice cream truck with all kinds of ice cream treats in it. Of course, all these little pieces are all over the house. This is just the most fun card!
