Ice Cream Truck Birthday

Hello Blogger friends! Happy 1st Saturday in May to you all. It's Mother's Day weekend so hope your kids, grandkids or hubby have something special planned to honor you. 

We have a restaurant dinner planned for my Mother-in-law. My daughter-in-law had to make an unplanned trip to Philadelphia so our annual brunch together will be when she gets back home. Nothing serious though.  

For my card today, I am featuring a new die from the CottageCutz "Sweet Treats" release. I created a birthday card using a new to me fun fold design. It's called the double easel fold.So here are some details on how I created my card. 

Design Steps: 
I cut the ice cream truck image using the packaging as a guide for the colors. I just loved the pink and purple truck.
For my card layout, I decided to do a fun fold. I was looking on Pinterest one day and came across a new to me double easel fold design. I thought it would work for my ice cream truck birthday card nicely. Here is a link to a video if you like visuals.
white card base: 4 1/4" x 11" - scored at 5 1/2"
lemon-lime layer: 4" x 10 1/4", scored at 2 1/2" and at 5"
lemon-lime designer paper: 3 3/4" x 5" and 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"

This is what the layer looks like after the score lines are burnished.
Next, I attached the designer paper layers.
Then this layer is attached to the white card base using double sided tape.
I cut my sentiments in 2 shades of pink. They are from the sentiments w/shadows release. I used Sweet, Happy Birthday and Wishes.
I attached the sentiments with glue dots. The ice cream truck is attached with dimensional adhesive. To finish off the card I scattered a few pink enamel dots.
And, that's my card for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
