Ice Cream Shaker Card

I don't have anyone in mind for this card... but it sure will make someone smile!
I made this card using Sweet Treats.  The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and will fit in a standard A2 envelope.  The special thing about this card is that the ice cream top is a shaker. 

I used some zig-zag ribbon... something I rarely use.  I also added a Prima Bitty Blooms flower under a button from my stash.  The little tag is a punch and the stamp is from Studio G (one from their Sweets collection).  

I layered some foam tape under the card stock layers (all from my stash) and a piece of plastic taken from a Cricut box. I used real ice cream sprinkles in the shaker. :)

Here is the card base, you can see how only the top scoop opens up. To get the ice cream cone texture on the cone, I used my Martha Stewart Score Board and scored the cone every 1/4". I then inked the cone with some brown ink. I think it creates a perfect texture for the cone.

The "Happy Birthday" inside the card is also from a Studio G stamp set.

OMG - this is adorable. I just love it! Just a heads up - I tried mailing a shaker with sprinkles once. It didn't look so great on the other side. This is too beautiful to risk!
