Ice Cream Truck:

Good morning all!  Here we are at Thursday again (not that I am complaining).

I made another shaped card, it just adds a little bit of fun to any image.  I used Scoops Ice Cream Truck and paper pieced the whole thing:


Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps digi, Echo Park Dots & Stripes and My Mind's Eye papers, Recollections cardstock, Dress It Up buttons, Glossy Accents, My Mind's Eye bakers twine. Tools:  sewing machine.

Top Tip Tuesday Tip - making shaped cards is SO easy!  When using a digi - just place it at the bottom of your page (I use Word 2010).  Print out, use your score board, fold, and cut.  It's just that easy and makes a big impact.  Perfect for a little guy!

I made this ice cream card for the following challenges:  Sweet Stampin'  Crafty Ann's and Squigglefly - paper piecing, 4 Crafty Chicks - stripes, Cards For Men - masculine birthday, There She Goes - stitching, Top Tip Tuesday - masculine.

Thanks for the visit - have a wonderful Thursday!
