Paper Ice Cream

Hoo boy, it's been hot on the east coast lately. Just for the record, I love summer, so am definitely not complaining. That said, ice cream has the enviable quality of making a hot day even better, and the folks at Häagen-Dazs are doing frozen treats proud with a cool embossed paper ad in summer magazines... here it is, direct from the pages of The New Yorker.

Ice cream

The ad reminds me of how much I've enjoyed paper embossing in the past. There's something magical about the way a stylus glides silently along and leaves a relief image in its wake. Perhaps give it a try this weekend... I bet you won't even break a sweat!

  1. I saw this in the latest Real Simple magazine and said 'WOW' too. I've never owned an embossing folder but have a ton of the brass plates (ha) as I love doing it by hand. Thanks for the inspiration, Ann! I may be busy too :) hugs xo

  2. that is a very cool ad. I bought a cuddlebug a couple years ago to do embossing. I love the look.
    I also love ice cream and have been eating a ton of it lately with all this heat. But like you, I won't complain because I love summer

  3. YUM! Heat and dry embossing are two of my favorites! And now there are wonderful embossing plates, embossing folders, etc. out there so you don't even have to pick up a stylus! LOL!
    Great ad!!!!
