Cute Ice Cream Cone Summer Birthday Cards

Inspired by everyone's favorite frozen treat, these cute summer birthday cards are super simple to make and feature the cutest little ice cream cone embellishment.
Nothing says summer like ice cream! Just the mere mention can set your mouth watering. Mmmmmm homemade strawberry ice cream! Today’s summer birthday cards tutorial was inspired by that favorite frozen treat.

My youngest two daughters both have summer birthdays and both looooooove ice cream.  I think they would eat it everyday if I would let them.  So I created this birthday card with them in mind.  These adorable ice cream cards would work equally well for kids and adults alike.

Inspired by everyone's favorite frozen treat, these cute summer birthday cards are super simple to make and feature the cutest little ice cream cone embellishment.

I just adore the little ice cream embellishment on this card.  I used a sponge dauber to apply some ink around the edges to give it some dimension.  So stinkin’ cute!

Just a heads up that although the Cool Treats stamp set and coordinating dies will be carrying over to the new catalog, the Tasty Treats Designer Series paper will not.  It was featured in the 2017 Occasions catalog and it will only be available until May 31st.   Right now the Tasty Treats DSP is on sale for 60% off (while supplies last) so it is a GREAT time to pick some up if you love that paper as much as I do.
