Punched Popsicles

Since we have a heat advisory today, I figured it would be a good day to share my Punched Popsicles.

To create the card front, I took a piece of Whisper White and sponged some Real Red and Close to Cocoa onto the corners.  I also stamped the "Celebrate" sentiment across the front. 

To make the popsicle, I tag punched a piece of Real Red cardstock.  I used my scallop circle punch to "take a bite" out of the popsicle.  I created the stem using Close to Cocoa with a word window punch.  After adhering to the piece of Whisper White, I used my white gel pen to draw a little shading on the popsicle and stem.

Once I had the card front completed, I mounted onto a piece of Close to Cocoa and the Real Red card base.  I decided I wasn't done with this one...

I created two more popsicles, one Only Orange and one Elegant Eggplant, as decoration for the inside of the card using the same technique as above.

This popsicle idea is just perfect! I need a card for a little girl getting her tonsils out! Thanks for the inspiration!
