Berry Sweet Ice Cream Cone


This is only my second time using the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge. I wanted to try the card feature and I chose the ice cream cone on page 34. It is cut at 7 inches using a buff color cardstock. All my papers are from my scrap paper stash. I used several Cuttlebug folders for added dimension. The Houndstooth folder is used on the lower part of the cone and Divine Swirls on the pink and chocolate layers. For the strawberry, I used Swiss dots and lightly inked the dots with green.
I cut the Layers feature using brown paper and again using green paper. Then I trimmed off top piece of the brown so I could have green color for the strawberry leaf. To sparkle things up a bit, I applied Stickles Lime Green on the leaf and Stickles Frosted Lace on the chocolate for the appearance of white chocolate dripping over it!! Yummy!!
For the sentiment, I used the word feature on page 47 on Simply Charmed. Berry Sweet is cut 1" on regular and shift  key.
Hope you enjoy!

  5. Sweet. Like your embellishing with stickles. The Herringbone embossing folder is perfect for the cone. Not heard of that one & I have several of the Cuttlebug embossing folders.
