Ice Cream Invitation To The House Of Cards

     We have a summer theme this month at the House Of Cards, we would like to see a card featuring ice lollies or ice creams, but if you'd rather you can just use the colour swatch to create any summer food card.
      This project is an invitation with a difference, I found the idea on Pinterest.
     It started with a large die cut circle of thin kraft type card, something that looks a bit like an ice cream cone. To make it more realistic I embossed it with a weave type pattern.
     The circle is folded in eight segments with a string added across one quarter. this will form the tie seal for the invite.
     There are four die cut circles needed for the ice cream to go into the cones. Each one was glued in place before gluing the cones shut.

     Once everything is glued together there are four cones formed to create a small book type card.
     To add the wording to the cones I chose a die that looked like a label, the printing was done using my word processor, then die cut and inked before being added to each cone.
     It's a novel way of making an invitation, great for a small summer gathering. The size of your circle at the beginning will determine the finished cone size, if you don't have a large die then think about using a plate to draw around.

      Please come and join us at the House Of Cards with your summer food creations, we don't have many rules, just stick to the theme or colours and the rest is up to you.
