Sunburst Ice Cream Card

Ice cream and sunshine are a perfect pair, and this Sunburst Ice Cream Card has both along with bright colors and a fun design pattern! See below for the tutorial to make one.

This card is definitely a scrap buster, too! The more patterns you have, the better to create this sunburst design for your background.

I had just finished making a few cards using these papers for the top layers (4” x 5 1/4”), and since this designer series paper pack comes as 6” x 6” squares, I had a lot of 2” strips left.

The strips that were leftover were all so pretty, I couldn’t just toss them; therefore I decided a sunburst design would be a great way to showcase each of them!

I know I’m not the only one who saves ALL. MY. SCRAPS. Lol. And I LOVE using them for fun new designs! Especially for this design that looks like sunshine shining outward!

How to make a Sunburst Ice Cream Card:

Cut your Cardstock:

  • Calypso Coral: 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4” for card base.
  • Basic White: 4” x 5 1/4”
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP) scraps

Make a Sunburst pattern for the background:

  • With your DSP scraps, trim them to ensure they are rectangles. Then cut them diagonally (from corner to diagonal corner) so they look like really long triangles.
  • Next, place these strips around your white layer, with the points all pointing to a single spot to one side and a sliver of white showing between each piece. Glue down your DSP.
  • Lastly, trim the pieces from the back of your white layer.

Create the Ice Cream Cone:

  • On a scrap of white paper, stamp the cone and lines using brown ink. I stamped off the brown to make the cone lighter than the lines.

TIP: For a lighter image, stamp once on scrap paper then stamp on your project without re-inking. This is called “stamping off.”

  • From a 1 1/2” strip of rainbow glimmer paper, I punched out a few ice creams. Glue one to the cone and glue each additional ice cream on top of the last.

Finishing Touches:

  • Stamp your sentiment on one of your DSP pieces.
  • Die-Cut a large circle from a coordinating piece of DSP. Glue it down ensuring to cover the “point” from your triangular DSP scraps. Adhere this layer to your card base.
  • Use dimensionals to adhere your ice cream cone to the circle.
