Dollar Deal Delights Part 2/ Less Is More Challenge Week 5

Today's card is a two-birds-one-stone kind of card. Not only does it cover my personal challenge to make a series of cards using mostly items that cost a dollar (or less!), but it also covers this weeks Less Is More blog challenge which is "Pastel Colours". This card was created using three g studio stamps (sentiment, ice cream cone and dot background) and pink g studio chalk ink. The ribbon is from one of those cheapo spools that usually cost 50 cents, but I only buy it when it is on sale 3/$1.00 and in some cases 4/$1.00. Bonus: the pink card stock used behind the ice cream cones are scraps from yesterdays project! Also used: Copic markers, textured card stock, ivory card base, dimensional adhesives, corner rounder.

I first stamped the ice cream cones onto Neenah card stock and colored using Copic markers (R20, R22, R35, E33 and E57). I stamped the dot background onto pink card stock rectangles and rounded the corners. I adhered three strips of ribbon, applied the dotted rectangles and adhered the ice cream cones using dimensional adhesives. The sentiment is stamped using the same pink chalk ink as the dots.

Here is a close-up of the ice cream cones...

and one of the sentiment. I love how the textured card stock breaks up the ink a bit.
