DIY Ice Cream Card Made Using The Cricut

DIY an Ice Cream Card using your Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore! An easy handmade card that’s perfect for birthdays and loved ones with a sweet tooth!

This summer, as our kitchen was being renovated, my Cricut went on the road with me so that I could craft on the go. We have a ton of summer birthdays in our family, so I found myself doing a lot of card making.

My little sister’s birthday is in July and she is obsessed with ice cream. You will never find her freezer without a couple of tubs of ice cream in it. She loves trying all the flavors, but also always has the classics like chocolate and french vanilla.

When it came time to make her a birthday card I pulled out my Cricut, searched through birthday card ideas and found this adorable ice cream card. It is so simple to make, doesn’t have a ton of layers and can be cut and assembled in less than 10 minutes.

Crayola sent me the beautiful Take Note Gel Pens shown in the picture! I’m so grateful to have some new rainbow colored pens and they work beautifully!

Voila! You have a fun and playful birthday card. On my sister’s card, since she likes ice cream so much I wrote in extra words so that it said “I like you more than YOU LIKE ice cream.”
