Circle Tag Book with Ice Cream Cones

Hello!  It's time for Karen Burniston's July Designer Challenge, and she challenged her Design Team to create a card using either the Tag Book or the Circle Tag Book. 

Every year I send Ice Cream cards to my kids in honour of my Mom. When she was a little girl there was a parade in their small town each July and afterwards her dad (my Grandpa) would take her for an ice cream soda. She made sure to take my brother and I for ice cream on this day each July and I did the same with my kids and now my grandkids. When my Mom lived away from us for a few years, I started sending her Ice Cream themed cards since we couldn't be together for an ice cream sundae and now I make sure to send my kids and my brother an ice cream card in July.

That is why I made an ice cream card for the challenge!  I have all the details on YouTube:  

As I said in the video, I chose to add the Evergreen Pivot Panels inside instead of the insert from the Circle Tag Book. I added it upside down then snipped off the hanging holes from the ice cream charms in the Sweet Treats set.

The ice cream scoops were die cut from glittery card stock in the patterned paper package and there are glittery bits in the patterned paper too.

Finally, here is the top view of the card.

I needed one more Ice Cream card so worked ahead and you will be seeing another one for the August Designer Challenge, only this time I used Karen Burniston's Parcel Pop Up combined with the Ice Cream Sundae Pop Up. 😊

I was also going to share  the Circle Tag Book assembly video for you, but since I really only used the outside, I'm just sharing the Evergreen Pivot Panels one only.  
Remember Karen Burniston has assembly videos for her pop up dies!  Once you know how to assemble your die, the rest is card size, paper and colour choice as well as embellishments! You can change the look of your card every time you use the dies. :-)  I always enjoy showing you different looks and ways you can use your dies once you know how to assemble them.

What a fun card! Your "outside the box" creativity always blows me away; I love how you turned the evergreen pivot panels upsidedown to look like ice cream cones!
