Thought I'd try making a Window Pop-Up Birthday card, using directions from the Secrets to Stamping blog.
In the process, I ended up making lots and lots of ice cream cones!
I found a great piece of ice cream cone paper in my stash which I wanted to use for the card. I also planned to use the Sunny Studio Two Scoops stamp set. My problem came when I tried to match the colors in the dp. The cone was created using 2 stamps, one for shape and a second for shading details. You would not believe how many combinations of ink I tried. There were ice cream cones everywhere. I finally decided on one that I sort of liked and added it to this card.
The inside sentiment can be seen through the front window and, when the card is opened, it pops up rather than just being stamped on the card base.
