whatever is the best...

The best dads become grandpas...
just the like best cream becomes frozen custard. 

Don't you wish this was a REAL frozen treat? 
With rich, cool, creamy sensations and sweet little sprinkles?

Well, I can't give you a real treat, but I can help you make this one!
I cut a triangle for a cone and embossed it with a Sizzix texture plate that has a waffle pattern.  The ice cream (or rather, frozen custard) is Fiskars circle squeeze punches ran through the Sizzix Big Shot with a swirly pattern texture plate.  I followed the swirly pattern with Glossy Accents and threw on a mixture of tiny seed beads while it was still wet.  It's as pretty as a REAL frozen treat!

My dad LOVES frozen custard.  And in Florida, where he lives now, it is hard to find!  On his summer trip up toWisconsin, he tries to get his fill. That's why I included a gift card to his favorite frozen custard stand (Kopp's) in the card. 
THIS will make him smile!

Happy Father’s Day
to the best Dad!
