You can't buy happiness....

Good Morning Rubber Cafe' fans.  Mary-Ann here to share my creation made with this months Kit of the Month - How Sweet it is!  This kit is packed with scrumptious goodies for all occasions.  
Today I focused on ice cream, of course!  Here is my completed card.....

I decided that this 5x5 card was going to carry loads of layers. The papers from Melissa Francis are just too beautiful not to use.  I layered until I was content.  I stamped the banner in the corner of my pink block.  After the card was complete, I added Glossy Accents to the banner.  Remember, this is not quick drying and the project must be left alone until completely dry.  

I stamped the cone and ice cream on different patterned paper.  I added Glossy Accents to the ice cream part of my cone after my card was completed.  You can see the layering in this photo.   

Foam tape helps with dimension and I am all about that!  If this card were to be mailed, I would have deleted the foam tape and applied everything flat.  Machine stitching some of your paper blocks just adds a little extra embellishment.  I chose black to help emphasize my twine, ink and black border.

You can see here that I added my twisted ribbon to each layer before adding the next layer of paper raised with foam tope.  Once my card was complete, I used my crop-a-file to punch two holes in the upper right to thread my twine for extra pop.  At this point my card was complete and I added the Glossy Accents and pearl dots.

Looking forward to seeing you again next Saturday.
