Best Day Ever Ice Cream Note Card

These ice cream cones are just perfect for a summer note card!

This is more of the American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim collection. I originally bought the 6 x 6 pad of this collection. Over the weekend, I ordered another 6 x 6 pad, and a few individual 12 x 12 sheets. I really love it.

Horizon Encouragement Note Card

I thought this paper from the On a Whim collection made the perfect horizon background for this sentiment.

Hello Note Card with Washi Tape

I bought the washi tape that matches the American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper when I bought the paper.

It has been sitting on my craft table. I love it.

But I don’t know what to do with it. 😉

I’m a very straight, neat, even OCD girl, so ripping it and putting it crooked to hold another piece down makes me hyperventilate. I do like the look when other crafters do it, but it just doesn’t work for me.

So, with straight lines in mind, I used some washi tape.

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Papertrey Ink Kraft, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, die – Lawn Fawn, washi tape – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
