MCT Weird Holiday - Ice Cream Day!

We're celebrating weird holidays with My Creative Time today. Did you know that July 16th is National Ice Cream Day?  I thought it would be fun to make an ice-cream birthday card for a friend who has a birthday on that same date!  I was able to make a super tall ice cream treat by making this card the size to fit in a business sized envelope:  9 1/4 x 4".  My striped layer is 9 1/4 x 3 3/4", and I made those stripes with a stencil from the Papertrey ink Market Street Kit and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade.

To make my ice cream cone, I die cut all of the pieces from Strathmore Watercolor paper, using dies from My Creative Time's You Make Life Sweet.  I then watercolored them with a paintbrush, picking up colors from my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, that I scribbled onto a craft mat.  "Happy birthday" was made with the MCT Happy Everything set.  I then finished off the card with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
