Orange Dreamsicle Card

I made this adorable, made-for-summer card today.  So cute!
 I used Simply Charmed for the orange dreamsicle base and welded it to form the shape card.  I adore shape cards! :)  I hit all the contours using my Gypsy and welded two to create the card.  This one measures 3" wide x 4" tall, once I add the Popsicle sticks, the card is 3" x 6" to fit some envelopes I have.

I inked the edges of the dreamsicle with some orange ink.
I added some orange and white bakers twine around the dreamsicle, and a bow with a clear button is a perfect place to set the cute little tag.  The stamp is from Studio G.

This Peachy Keen stamp is so cute for my screaming dreamsicle!! This one if from the Laughy Taffy Face Assortment. I colored in her lips with an orange Glaze pen.

As you can see the card opens just on the top half. I added the Popsicle sticks to both the front and back so it can stand up to be displayed.  I used hot glue to attach the sticks to the front of the card base.  To fit the width of the sticks, I used pop dots to attach the orange front to the card base.

Like this card. The Popsicle sticks are a perfect added touch. Like PK stamps. There is a challenge at Scrapalicious USA Ch #12 Anything Summer stamping (my post for tomorrow Thurs 7/21 will be for this challenge) that your stamp sentiment may qualify for. Ck it out.
