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
