Today's tutorial once again features the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set & punch. This set just popped up on the retiring list today, so Boom come May it will no longer be available. 
As of today it is available while supplies last for 

What a "sweet" price!!

I had a card class prepped for April using this bundle ( you may have received the email with the now cancelled class ). That "cards to go class" will still be offered, however it will be a materials only class and you could now purchase the stamp set and punch for the slashed price. 

To Shop for the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set & Ice Cream Builder punch click the links above ( while supplies last ).

So let me give you the measurements for the card above, and let you get creating for half the price!! 
Card  Measurements & Instructions:

Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4 x 11 
Scored @ 5 1/2

Designer Series Paper: 4 x 3

Soft Suede Or Basic White ( depending on which card ) Rectangle from Color & Contour dies or 3 3/4 x 2 1/2 

Basic white scrap for stamping sentiment 

Basic white scraps for stamping cone and ice cream scoops.

Cut & Score all of the card pieces. Then stamp your required pieces including the sentiment. 
I started out with the cone stamp and stamped off once and then stamped on a scrap of white using soft suede ink.  Then I used the waffle pattern in soft suede to stamp the center of the cone.  I stamped an ice cream scoop in each of the colors to coincide with the particular card.  I stamped the sentiment in coordinating ink color. Punch out the pieces using the Ice Cream Builder Punch.
For the 1st card I stamped using the "splash" type stamp to dot the top half of the Basic White card base for that cookie crumb effect. 
Attach the designer series paper piece to the bottom of the card front. 
Attach the rectangle piece to the center of the card front using dimensionals. I embossed the rectangle piece for a bit of dimension, you don't have to ( but it looks awesome ). 
Adhere the cone to the front of the rectangle. Then attach your ice cream scoops using dimensionals.  Attach the greeting just below the cone. 
I added a few Opal Rounds for a fun water drop look to the tasty frozen treat.
Stamp your inside with a greeting of your choice or perhaps a few  more ice cream cones. 
And just like that... 
An adorable card to send off in the mail! 

This card layout works with so many different designer series papers, that all you have to do is coordinate up your ice cream scoop colors to match. 
Now I've told you dozens of times how much I love a stamp set that has a matching punch... I love it even more when it's this cheap to purchase such an amazing set! 
You don't want to miss that!
