More Momenta

Hello, friends:}

**Click HERE for my Sweet Stamp Shop post. 
I'm so  excited to share more Momenta goodness with you today! This project was featured Wednesday {HERE} on the Momenta blog. So be sure to stop by there and check out my post and even more creations!! 
Because the patterned paper is double-sided--it was perfect for the base of this card. The outside is pink polka dot, and the inside is the pink grid.

I wanted to create a card that folded in on itself and could easily be sent in the mail **ok--now that I look at the finished project, I might have to put this in an envelope to protect the ribbon and embellishment! LOL!...so I created a template for a 4" x 4" square envelope card. I used my pink polka dot and grid papers from Momenta's Let's Party pyramid paper pad for the basic design. I also used the ice cream patterned paper for the center panel. After creating this card design, I thought it would be fun to make the center panel a place to hold a gift card--all I did was punch a notch out of the top, add a bit of tape on three edges, and attached it to the center. EASY! I stamped some fun ice cream images {Sweet Scoop from the Sweet Stamp Shop} and I used some foam dots to add it to my card. I also created a smaller one scoop cone for the closure with a bow {ribbon available from The Ribbon Carousel}. 
The envelope card opened up completely.

The best part of this card was creating the Momenta Design Your Own alphabet stickers! I love this video tutorial on how to create your own stickers. I used a color palette that was already created--but you can make your own design, customize your own color, and more! This was SUPER easy and so fun! **I actually had the HARDEST time picking with color combo I wanted to use! I cannot wait to make more customized stickers!

That's it for me today! Don't forget to stop by the Momenta blog and leave some love there!!! THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

I've never seen a card like this before and it's fabulous! I love how you wrapped it with a single cone and surprises with a multi-scooped one inside. Fun, fun, fun!

Great job making a mailable card/envelope-in-one, Sav! I thought I recognized that Sweet Stamp Shop ice cream cone, too. Looks just perfect on here!
