You're Sweet Thank You Card

A friend of mine treated my oldest daughter and me to a yummy lunch on my birthday, and I wanted to make a fun fold card to thank her. For this fun fold card design, I followed the instructions from Iced Images video here: (1) 5x7 Pop Out Floating Panel Card - YouTube. She calls it a 5X7 Pop Out Floating Panel Card. The center panel of hers is a bit different. I had to change it to accommodate the House Mouse stamp I wanted to use. 

I created a cut file in my Silhouette Design Studio software for the card base and panels based on Iced Images' measurements, and then I chose my papers. Since the stamp I was using featured ice cream, I went with some cute pattern papers with a frozen treat theme. The pattern paper I used on the inside of the card features ice cream cones and the one I used on the back has popsicles. I'm keeping some of that popsicle pattern paper to make an "anything is popsicle" card at some point! I just love puns!

After stamping the House Mouse stamp, I colored it with colored pencils and then fussy cut it. I chose a "thank you" stamp from my stash and an old CTMH stamp with a "you're sweet" sentiment that seemed like the perfect sentiment for this sweet treat-themed card. This is a 5X7 card, but I can see trying it as an A2 card at some point now that I've created the cut file for it.
