Hi Doodlebug fans! Jennifer here for the Doodlebug / Sizzix Team Up! For my project I decided to convert an old wood truck into an ice-cream van. With all the cute ice-cream and popsicle icons in the Sunkissed collection, I couldn't resist using it to create this project.
I think this would be a fun decoration at an ice-cream party or summer-get-together. I had a great time experimenting with the embossing folders and mixing the die-cuts with my existing Doodlebug stash.
Okay! So let's go over some of the details. Below, you can see I used an Eyelet Lace Decorative Strip along with a scalloped border sticker, to decorate the front of the van. A die cut flower, sprinkles and a flower sticker from the collection, were also used to embellish the borders.Scalloped Decorative Die. The strip was a little big, so I cut it to size, then embossed it with the Dots #7 Embossing Folder. A thin rectangular strip was attached to the scalloped one, then folded, as shown. A orange scalloped border was then cut into single scallops, embossed and attached to the awning. More die cut flowers, leaf sprinkles and some jewels were used to embellish the awning, before it was attached to the van. I also added some vellum to the inside of the windows to create the look of sliding shutters.
Thanks for checking out my project and don't forget to check out the Sizzix blog for more inspiration too. Jennifer
