As a Foodie, I always love it when Stampin’ Up! comes out with a new food stamp set. There are so many possibilities for your cardmaking creations with this set. My project today creates this friendship card for your friend’s who have a sweet tooth like I do.

This food stamp set would also be perfect for children’s birthday party invitations, dessert buffet signage, or even tags for an ice cream toppings gift basket! So many possibilities! But let’s focus on today’s friendship card.

Share a Milkshake and Best Family Ever stamp sets from Stampin' Up!

The Share a Milkshake collection includes the photopolymer stamp set above for $19.00 and a set of 12 metal dies for $30.00. The Best Family Ever photopolymer stamp set costs $24.00. Both of these sets will be in my stamp room for a long time to come.

Share a Milkshare stamp set from Stampin' Up! and 4 ink pads of the colors used in the Friendship book fun fold card.

Here’s the front of the Friendship Book Fold Fun Fold card and matching envelope. The color scheme used was a new color – Pecan Pie; one returning color – Pretty Peacock; and two inks, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso, that have been in the Neutrals Collection for quite a while.

Here’s the inside of the Friendship Book Fold Fun Fold card that uses the Best Family Ever stamp set for the inner greeting. I love that stamp set because you can mix and match so many of the stamps. I think they have included every relative or friend possible that you could make a card for!

Here’s a close up of the Friendship Card front. My intent was ice cream in the flavors of caramel, fudge brownie, and peanut butter, with some fudge sauce on top. (Can you tell I love chocolate and caramel?) The Glorious Gingham 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP)  in Pecan Pie lent itself well to the waffle cone die. You really can’t see it in the photo, but the waffle cone die, put little ridges into the paper so it feels textured like a real waffle cone.

Behind the cone is Pretty Peacock Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper that I haven’t seen many demonstrators use yet. It was easy to cut on my die cutting machine. Also the glitter/shimmer didn’t get all over the place like other brands do. Behind that layer was more of the Glorious Gingham DSP in Pretty Peacock.

Now for the Friendship Book Fun Fold Card Assembly Process:

On the front of the book fun fold, adhere the Pretty Peacock Shimmer Circle.

Then with liquid glue, lightly dot the Early Espresso “burlap” piece and adhere to Shimmer paper as shown.

Place Dimensionals on the back of the tag and adhere as shown.

With 3 scraps of Basic White cardstock 1 1/4″ x 1 3/4″, stamp your ice cream scoops in Crumb Cake ink, Pecan Pie ink, and Early Espresso ink. (The reason you see more scoops than are needed is I couldn’t decide if I liked the scoops stamped on Crumb Cake or Basic White, but Basic White won out!)

With a very small scrap of Early Espresso cardstock, die cut the little blob of fudge sauce.

Fold waffle cone into the cone shape and adhere the front flap to close it only.

You need the room inside to arrange the ice cream scoops.

With Linen Thread wrap it multiple times around the “binding” and tie a knot then a bow.

Assemble your ice cream scoops inside the cone as shown. I scotch taped mine together to hold them. When placing the Dimensionals

you can secure any wobbly pieces.

Use mini and regular Dimensionals to raise up the finished cone on the card front.

3 Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequins in Copper color. Affix as shown.

Finish with decorating your Basic White Medium Envelope flap.

Cut a 2 3/8″ x 6″ piece of Glorious Gingham Designer Series Paper – Pretty Peacock.

Adhere envelope flap piece, then with paper snips, trim off excess.
