Summertime Blues

The theme for the current TGIF! challenge is the Summertime Blues.  What’s a cure for those blues – enjoying ice cream with our granddaughters at the Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor in LeMars, IA!

And that was the inspiration for my card, along with the Fab Friday sketch challenge.

To make this card, I started with a Pool Party card base and added the blue background print from the retired Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.  I adhered a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card background.

I cut all the pieces for the sundae using the Frozen Treats Framelits.  The scoops of ice cream are cut from Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, and Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  The topping is cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock, the spoons from the Silver Foil paper, and the bowl from Tasty Treats Specialty DSP.  The Multipurpose Liquid Glue works well for assembling the sundae.  Using a sentiment from the retired Tasty Trucks stamp set, I made a small banner which is adhered to the back of the ice cream dish.  Next, I tied a small bow of Linen Thread around the two spoons and attached them to the bowl using a glue dot.  A small Real Red cherry tops off the sundae.  I then adhered the sundae onto a Whisper White circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and added the cute Flirty Flamingo scalloped circle cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.   Finally, I popped up the assembled circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now I may need to go enjoy some more ice cream!
