Sweet Ice Cream Impossible Card

Does this card look impossible to make? It isn't really. Plus I put the impossible portion on an actual card base so you can write a note and include a gift card for the lucky birthday boy or girl.

The Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch makes the cutest "Disney-ish" popsicles, by turning the scoop 180 degrees. Credit goes to Patty Bennett for designing these popsicles.

So grab your Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set, the cone punch, and Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper and let's get started!

After you get your Highland Heather cardstock scored and cut like my diagram shows, all you have to do is gently take hold of the side that is split in two and flip one half of that side over 180 degrees. The center piece will stand up and you'll have the base correct like it is shown in my card photos. 

I went ahead and glued the impossible piece to my Soft Sea Foam card base to hold it in place while I worked on adding the Designer Series Paper pieces and making the two Disney popsicles.

Start with the Designer Series Paper:
You will need two pieces of each pattern, and glue as you go.
Striped - 1" x 1-7/8"
Sprinkles - 1-7/8" x 2-1/2"
Ice Cream Cones - 1-7/8" x 2-3/4"

Stamp the dotted image with Highland Heather Ink as shown before 
attaching the Happy Birthday greeting.

Basic White cardstock - a piece 2" x 2-3/4" will allow you to stamp both sayings using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. You'll have space to fussy cut the large saying and snip the little saying into three parts. Mount the greetings on scraps of Poppy Parade cardstock. Fussy cut out the larger greeting. Mount the small words and trim as needed. Glue the little words flat to card base. Raise up the larger greeting with dimensionals.

Building the 2 Disney Popsicles:
Punch out two scoops in Early Espresso with the Ice Cream Cone Builder punch.
If you have a small heart punch and regular hole punch, 
create the bow in Poppy Parade and attach to one scoop. (Or you can make it by hand if needed.)
With another scrap of Poppy Parade cut slightly less than half of the circle end of the scoop to make the "shorts" and attach.  If you have some Bumblebee enamel dots add those to the shorts as shown.
For the popsicle sticks - stamp two narrow scraps of Cinnamon Cider with stick outline stamp in Early Espresso ink. Stamp woodgrain also in Early Espresso. Fussy cut out and scotch tape to back of scoops. Mount popsicles on upright piece with mini dimensionals.

So now you've done the impossible! You've made your own Impossible Card! 
This fun fold works for any occasion so have fun with it.

Happy Stamping,
