Thinking of you popsicles

I was looking around at my favorite blogs today and was totally inspired by Cassandra at Cricut Croppin' With Cassandra. She didn't share dimensions or anything, so flying by the seat of my pants, I created this card.
This is a 4" x 9" card (standard business size).  I cut the little popsicles using Simply Charmed (2 1/2") but added real popsicle sticks to the bottoms!! CUTE right?!? Love it. 

I cut the popsicles in six different colors and added a different Peachy Keen face to each one. These faces are 1" from Everyday Character Assortment, but I'd think that different sizes may work fine too, depending on the set you are working with.

I tied matching bakers twine to each popsicle, I tied a double loop bow too. Coloring the whites of the eyes with my gelly roll pen adds a lot of character.  Some popsicles are mounted up on pop dots, while other are attached directly to the card base.

The ones with a bite out have a sad or mad face.  The "Thinking of You" stamp is from a TPC Studio set. I also added a couple of loops of pink and white bakers twine around the pink and polka-dot layers before I adhered it to the craft colored base.

I hope you can see the dimension in this picture.  Because of the popsicle stick, each of the popsicles is put together with pop dots, then some are added to the base with pop dots... love the height and dimension on this card!! Like usual, I added a line of gel pen stitches to the card base, inside and outside.

Here is the inside... I attached the scraps from the card front to the left hand side.  I only glued down the top, bottom and left hand side of these layers, that way you could add a gift card or something if you'd like.
