Orange Dreamsicle Card - take 2

I made an orange dreamsicle card a while back... here is an updated take on that card.  For this one, I used Doodlecharms and cut the top at 3" W x 4" tall.  That left me with 1 1/2" for the sticks and it still fits into an A
2 envelope.
I cut the dreamsicle top with orange ink, the card base is white.  I inked all the orange with a darker orange ink to give the layer dimension.  For the sticks, I used the large craft sticks (think tongue depressor size) cut in half. I glued the sticks in using hot glue and then used foam tape to attach the front to the card base.

The little tag cut is from an old punch I have, the stamp is from Studio G's Sweets collection. The adorable sheer ribbon is actually from Dollar Tree, if you haven't looked there for craft supplies, it is worth the trip.

On the inside of the card, I printed out the sentiment. The punch is a journaling tag punch from EK Success. I just took the same orange from the front and printed on it before punching, inking and gluing them to the inside of the card.

Here is the close-up of the sentiment tag. :)

I ended up making a few of these cards... ten for a swap and a few to give to friends for National Friendship Day (July 30th)

Hey Cheryl! I love this card. The colors make it really look like a delicious cold popcicle. And the weather we've been having, it would be nice to eat something cold. The sticks are a added bonus to the look. TFS
