Ice Cream Cone Shaped Birthday card

Created this Ice Cream Cone Shaped Birthday Card using Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge & self-adhesive pink foam craft. Used my Gypsy to weld the ice cream cone shaped card. This is first time for cutting the Doodlecharms ice cream cone. Think this is my first time cutting foam craft on my Cricut. 

Watched video on Cathie's Creative Craft Room blog:
 Watch This Wednesday: Cutting Craft Foam

Had the foam craft for quite some time from a Valentine pkg. One of my fav ice cream is strawberry; thus reason for pink foam craft.

Used Cricut settings: blade 6, pressure max, speed 3. After the foam craft was cut I used my Tim Holtz scissors to snip a cut from the edge of the foam craft to to the tip of the ice cream cut image and was able to release the foam craft image ice cream scoop.

To give 3D texture I used 3 embossing folders: the Paper Studio Mesh Texture on the ice cream cone, D'Vine Swirl on the pink foam craft scoop of ice cream & Swiss Dots on the cherry.

For the sentiment I used red cardstock to be a cherry, a Fiskars circle punch and Joy's Life Yummy Pun clear stamp.
