Sundae card!

Looking through all the stickers I have I found a set I'd found at Dollarama of ice cream cones and sundaes. I couldn't resist! The sundae was great because it had coloured ice cream, plus chocolate, whipped cream, and a cherry (made with a little red rhinestone!). Yum! Then I thought of some great paper I have that is just pictures of chocolate chips! How sweet! ;)
I decided to try a flap card so I pulled out a piece of double sided plain paper from a pack I'd gotten at Walmart. It was the perfect colour to go with the blue in the sundae. Then pink paper for the same reason. I covered the chocolate chip paper with plain white vellum to tone it down a bit, which allowed me to write the sentiment right there. I used a brown fineliner then went over it with clear Sakura gel pen. I was excited that I could even get my shimmer brads to match! It was a card that was meant to be!
I repeated the chocolate chip paper, vellum, and then a piece of pink cardstock inside. I pulled out a doodlebug stamp I have of an ice cream cone and stamped it in brown in each corner, then used my glaze pen again to go over the ice cream. Just nicely muted but tying everything together.
