Time for Ice Cream

I love this card. This is a card that was cased from a convention card that my upline Kristi Stoughton received at convention. She brought this to her quarterly business meeting as a make-n-take. So we all got a chance to make one. So thanks to the person that made these for swaps at convention. I don't know who that is, but everyone that sees this card, love it!

This really cute ice cream cone that is made using the large Big Shot Scallop Square. Once you cut the scallop square, you use the textile embossing folder to make the "sugar cone" effect.. Then use the scallop circle to punch 3 cirlces that you can layer to make the ice cream scoops.

The bottom picture shows the card with the cone open.

The trick that I have found with this card is to lay the scallop in front of you with one of the corners at the top. Count down four scallops from the top corner on the right and fold to the 1st scallop on the bottom.  Then count down to the 4th scallop on the left - counting the top scallop as 1 for each side.  Fold from the 4th scallop to the 2nd scallop on the bottom over your first fold.  It should not look like an ice cream cone.
