Ice Cream is Just the Ticket!

I have a really summery fun creation to show you today!  This one is for those days when the thermometer is pushing higher and higher and a little ice cream (or in this case, rainbow sherbet) might be in order.  

I pulled out The Cat’s Pajamas sweet set - Life Is Like Ice Cream, giving it the rainbow sherbet colour with Copics, and trimming the little ice cream guy out.  Next,  I made a very vibrant sherbet-like card design with lots of fun papers, and added a ticket pocket with TCP’s die Big Ticket CutUp and the set Admit One.  

He looks pretty cool and cozy in there doesn’t he?  A few fun accents like the Toppers CutUps border, a button, twine and some enamel dots finish the design.  The background dots in the orange layer are done with the Dots CutUps Die, just embossing the die into the paper not cutting it.  

Here’s a peek at the coupon tag that pulls out of the ticket holder, entitling the receiver to a date with ice cream.  I know my kids would love to receive this...or my husband....they think ice cream is it’s own food group :)  

I added the ice cream letters with a retired TCP alpha set, but you could write it in as well.  

Here’s a sunny picture of the Copics I used...
