Cool Congratulations!

Hello! I am so happy you stopped in today because I have a fun little card to share with you!  I love making handmade cards, especially the ability to personalize it in a special way for the recipient.  Sure I could go buy a graduation card that looks like hundreds of others and has zero personal touches, but instead I chose to do homemade-complete with school colors, or in this case ice cream!  What? You don't immediately think of ice cream cones when you think of graduation cards?? Hmm...

Just teasing! This tasty little graduation card was made for a wonderful young lady who works with both DDs at our local ice cream shop.  She is pretty close to being another daughter and often tells my girls that she is my favorite child!  A store bought card would be an atrocity for this special girl!

I found the ice cream paper (American Crafts) at JoAnn's and paired it with a daffodil delight base.  I stamped the sentiment with melon mambo ink and colored some enamel dots with a pink sharpie to bling it up just a little.  A sweet card for a sweet young lady!  Although, this would also make a fun birthday or hello card for summer too!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Have a super day and happy crafting!
