Altered Die #15

Hi Everyone! I am back again with another altered die card. August is a good month for eating ice cream. I love ice cream and can eat it all year round! On this card I made an ice cream cone by altering two dies. I am always in need of birthday cards so I made this one for a birthday.




I started off using the Memory Box Flowering Tree die shown here.




I turned it upside down to make a cone and layered it on a white triangle. Next I used the Stitched Circle die from Gina Marie for the ice cream. I used my scallop scissors to cut off part of the circle.




The ice cream was popped up and I added some enamel dots for "sprinkles."




I stamped, colored and fussy cut this cute penguin from Stampalicious and also popped him up on the card. 




I hope this inspires you to do some die altering of your own. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

You are so clever! I have that same Christmas tree die and I would have never thought to make it into a cone, but it works really well! In fact, I love it as the cone, and the scoop of ice cream is great too! I have to try thinking outside of the box more with my dies! Thanks for playing along with us at Scrapy Land Challenges!
