Felt Ice-Cream Birthday Card

Felt ice-cream birthday card idea is to make use of felt to create a super-cute looking ice-cream sprinkled with delicious button toppings. It’s going to make a birthday boy or birthday girl very happy upon receiving this card! :-)

I’m having a blast with felt. I think I’ll learn to create more things with it. It’s a nice medium to work with, and sewing with embroidery floss isn’t hard because the stitches don’t need to be perfect. Totally have a homemade look to it!
