Loads of Lolly

Hello.  Welcome.  In the Scandinavian corner of blogland I keep coming across Lollipop cards.  What's that all about?  I don't understand.   So in the interests of finding out, I decided to make one and see.  Oh dear, I think I've discovered something new and fun to do!!!   

This was way more fun than I was anticipating.  It all started cos I found this fun snowpeep from Unity stamps already stamped and embossed on a piece of card.  I cut the image with Sizzix Circle die and smeared on the Blueprint Sketch distress.  I added some lace and scored and folded some MME patterned paper to make my rosette.  

TIP #1 - use double sided patterned card!!  I had to back mine with patterned paper.

I inked the edges of the rosette with Blueprint Sketch.  The silver metal frame is from Korthobby.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamps.  I also added a tiny bell from Korthobby, cos angels arrive to the sound of bells.  Both the frame and the bell were part of a lovely bag of charms I won from Korthobby for being a challenge winner.  Thanks Wenche.  Hugz

TIP #2 - ink the edges of your folded rosette before folding it ROFL

I didn't have a stripey straw so I wrapped a stripey pipecleaner around it.  The pipecleaner also became a great way to hold the frame and bell in place.  I added a simple die cut circle to the back so there was somewhere to write.   My first lollipop card.  So, that's what it's all about...........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
