Ice Cream Tag/Bookmark

Created this Tag/Bookmark using Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. Used the Popsicle image to make an ice cream treat. Here in Texas we have Blue Bell ice cream and these treats are called Moo Bars which have vanilla ice cream on inside and chocolate layer on outside.

Used a sketch that you can see below.

Used Enamel accents to make the white cardstock look more like vanilla ice cream. Used negative cut of a Spellbinder die to frame the ice cream treat. Recycled a wood Blue Bell ice cream stick as stick for this ice cream treat. Stamped Joy's Life Yummy Puns sentiment and used a Stampin' Up punch for sentiment tag. Inked the edges of the sentiment tag with same ink I used to stamp the sentiment. Used different shades of pink core'dinations cardstock. Added buttons & ribbon/bow.

I think the ribbon compliments the colors in the DCWV pattern cardstock from Nana's Kitchen matstack.
