CDAC PC #18 Ice Cream Cone

It’s Round 18 of the Progressive Challenge at CDAC  and for this final round and it is all about

Summer Sizzle

We have some lovely mages from some fabulous creators. Team A have the pleasure in bringing you some gorgeous samples for the images for this round

My card is using a fab image called Ice Cream Cone from Pattie’s Creations
Well in the UK our weather has been so up and down lately it doesn’t feel like we will have a Summer but the images we have for this, the final round of challenges at CDAC will help to bring a bit of Summer to your lives. I’m sure you will have as much fun with them as we the DT have.

I decided to go quite bold and bright with this card. I have this brilliant set of 3 craft drawers by DCWV that I got from QVC some years ago and I knew the Summer one had some ice cream themed items so this was where I started. I printed the design so that I could decoupage the layers and picked the colours of blue and pink from the main patterned paper. The textured cardstock is colour co-ordinated from the same drawer set and the patterned brad is also from there.

I used a Nestabilities die to cut the image and mounted the layers with 3d foam. The final layer has had a coat of Glossy Accents applied and I have added some beads that have been recycled from an old t-shirt.

The layout has been inspired by a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping, however I am not convinced they will accept my entry as my card is probably not CAS enough for them, mind you it is quite CAS for me…..

The sentiment if a freebie from Wink Wink Ink and is again cut with a nestie die and inked around the edges.


If you have taken part in the last challenge you will be receiving your images to work with for this part. If however you didn't enter all is not lost. For the paltry sum of only $1 you can buy back into the challenge and you will receive the images.
