Ice Cream Pop Up Slimline

Hello!  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.

I have a walkthrough of my card on YouTube here

The ice cream stamps/dies are ones I've had for many years. I really do try to invest in products that I can use a lot, and while I have been getting a few new goodies in my craft room lately - a lot of thought goes into the majority of my purchases.

Inside I used Karen Burniston's Mini Pops to create the pop up. I did extend the arms by about 1", and if I decide it's something I want to do again I will also do a tutorial for you.

Here is Karen Burniston's Mini Pops Assembly Video:

For your convenience I have linked many of the products I enjoy using below. Some may be affiliate links which means if you use these links to purchase I may earn a small commission but there is NO extra cost to you.

Regarding the shopping links below, it looks like the Stamps of Life are clearing out the ice cream sets, so I'm not sure how long the links will work. Since I can't link the patterned paper I used, I am linking a different one (that I also own and love) that has a similar look.

Additional Supplies:
Patterned paper - Gilded Ink - Recollections
Seam binding
Shimmer spray
Grey topic
Gold foil card stock - Stampin' Up

Thanks for stopping by
