"Popsicle Card"

Every since Rochelle posted her popsicle cards (HERE), I've been dying to make one! I do not have SU's Tart & Tangy set yet, so my sweet gal pal, Rochelle, is so graciously sending me some of the stamped images so I can make some of the different colors.

However, my dear friend, Anndrea, placed an order for some of these style cards for 'thank-you's' to the kiddos that gave her end of the year teacher gifts. (She had requested an apple on the front, but did not insist on one, but her order gave me an excuse to go to Hobby Lobby to buy me an apple stamp *wink, wink*)

Anyway, this is an example of one of the cards for her order. I used my new apple stamp by Stampabilities; colored it with my Prismacolor pencils; and, then blended with Gamsol and a stump. I've posted a smaller photo below of the inside. The 'thank you' was stamped with SU's real red, and the stick was tied off with sheer polka-dotted Offray ribbon. These are so fun to make!

I hope Anndrea likes these! I think these are really cute and would also work great for kids' birthday invitations! They are just fun!!

Strange how we are all on the same page....I've been making these this weekend. Don't have anything stamped on the front yet...thought I would use them for kids packages gift tags. I love it!! C

Yes, Anndrea does like these! Not only do I like, I LOVE! Can't wait to send them to my students! What would I do without you, Jo?

Yours turned out so cute. Love that apple stamp. I also made a bunch of these over the weekend - orange, cherry, lime and chocolate fudge. They are so cute. We gave one to each of my son's teachers with a Baskin Robbins gift card inside. My son wrote Thanks for being a "cool" teacher inside the card. They really like them. Thanks for posting

Our Hobby Lobby trip was well worth it. The apple stamp worked well, and so did the popsicle sticks.
