For today’s Make a Card Monday card, I wanted to create a long card (9″ x 3.5″) that would fit inside a standard business size envelope. So I decided to use the Ice Cream Dream stamp set from the latest Simon August 2014 card kit.
After stamping and heat embossing the ice cream images, I did a bunch of watercoloring with my Sakura Koi watercolor set. I just love the bright, saturated colored in this watercolor set. The paints are fantastic! If I were to do this card over again, I think I would have the background be just gray instead of all the different colors. That way, the colorful ice cream treats would stand out more. But the way it is now is good, too. :)
