Five Scoops Please

This card is for all of you who just love ice cream, and never can make up your mind about what flavor to get... chocolate, or strawberry, or mint, or banana.  Just get them all!  Here I have created a huge quadruple scoop +1 (I don't know what you call 5 scoops) ice cream cone. 

This is not a difficult card but does take a lot of patience.  I stamped the ice cream from Sweet Scoops in five different colors on Whisper White and then covered each scoop with Crystal Effects.  While it is drying, I created the rest of the card-- it is a Whisper White base, with a layer of Close to Cocoa and Tropical Oasis DSP (from the mini) on top.  Once the scoops were dry, I cut each of them out using the paper snips.  Then I stacked them on the Close to Cocoa cone using dimensionals.  The greeting is part of a larger greeting that I just used a marker to stamp alongside the cone.  

I layered the Whisper White focal point on close to cocoa and added a white tafetta ribbon.  And, there you go.  Be sure that the crystal effects is completely hard before you begin handlin the scoops of ice cream.  If it's still tacky, you will get weird bumps in the ice cream.  Not so scrumptious!
