Scrappin on Saturday

Hello fellow crafters!! I hope you all have had a fantastic week and are now enjoying your weekend!!

First, there is still time to enter into our "Cool Treats" challenge for this week!! It's a great one with an amazing  sponsor!! Check it out!!!

So in honor of our challenge this week I came across a card (well several in fact) that where shaped like Popsicles!! How fun right!! So I thought it would be fun to show you how easy it is to create!! 



So go grab your supplies!! You will need:

* trimmer
* score board
* adhesive
* cardstock
* stamps and ink
* corner rounder
* Popsicle stick
* and your Cricut of course!! ;)

First you want to cut your base at 6" x 5"

On the 6" side score in half at 3" (excuse my messy score board...it is bet loved)

Next, cut 2 pieces of coordinating cardstock for your insides at 2.75" x 4.75" . I also rounded the corner of these pieces along with the base.

Stamp your sentiment

Adhere the Popsicle stick to the middle of the base. Allow it to hang out the bottom a couple inches, the attach your sentiment over the top.

Then to decorate the front, I got out my Cricut and cut a decorative oval border using the Forever Young cartridge. I attached it to the front using foam tape that way it had some dimension to it. And to finish it all off I took my scalloped circle punch and punched a "bite" out of the top corner!!

Easy peasy, right!! I hope you give it a try!!
