It is always fun to get to play with products the design team receives and to make samples. My card today is based on the Summer theme challenge inspiration photo posted on July 5th. In the photo was an adorable Popsicle that looked like a watermelon.
I just had to re-create a card using their Sweet & Cool die set! Here's my finished card:
Since I wanted to match the Melon Ice for a background panel, I simply swiped the inkpad along the edge! No worries about having the right cardstock. The white panel was diecut using Journey Rectangles.
Of course I had a package of popsicle sticks in my stash and snipped off a section with my wire cutters! It is held in place with Beacon 3-in-one glue. Sweet was stamped next with Midnight.
Finally, Hello was stamped using the Misti to insure I would get a solidly filled in sentiment using CP's new Black Jack. The panels were affixed and the popsicle was mounted with foam mounting tape that was exactly the thickness of the popsicle stick. CP&9th heart diecut was mounted to the popsicle for added whimsy.
