CWC: Taste of Summer Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to DAY 2 of the Taste of Summer Blog hop at Cooking with Cricut. If you are following along you should have arrived from Hattie's wonderful blog. If you get lost along the way or you have stumbled across this hop and would like to start from the beginning, head on back to Cooking with Cricut for the complete hop schedule.

Now...

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!!!! What says summer better than a double or even a triple scoop ice cream cone! I used the Once Upon a Princess Cartridge to create this fun card today. The cut only came with two scoops, but I cut out an extra one to make this 3 scooper!

 I love the look of embossing folders on plain white cardstock! They create such a great base. I used the Swiss Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug this time.

Well that is it for me today, now please hop on over to Lynden's blog and see what she has cooked up for you.

Thanks so much for joining us :)
I love to read your kind comments.

  4. Becky,,

    This is oh so pretty. I just love the way you used patterned paper for the ice cream scoops. The embossed background is just perfect and shows up so well. What a great idea to used the brad as a cherry on top.
