Summer Treat Card by Annie

Posted on July 11 2018

Hello - Annie here today with a quick and fun card. I created this fun summer card using the Patriotic Variety Pack - Artist Pack 4" x 6"

Materials: 
Patriotic Variety Pack - Ruby Red Starstruck, Silver Starstruck, and Sapphire Blue Starstruck
Avery Elle - Cool Treats 
Recollections Brand Summer Treats Embossing Folder
Recollections Brand Cardstock - 4-1/4" x 5" SkyBlue & 4-1/4" x 5" White
Card Base - A2 - 4.25" x 5.5" 
Adhesive
Foam adhesive 
Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Mini Popsicle Stick
Jewels - Red, White and Blue
Trimmer
Scissors
Die cutting/embossing Machine(i.e. Cuttlebug or Bigshot)
Optional:
Water in a misting bottle
Color markers to match the Rinea Patriotic Variety Artist Pack Foil Paper

 

Directions:
1. Cut the Skyblue cardstock to 4.5" x 5" Then,  mist the Skyblue with a bit of water, next, place the cardstock in the embossing folder and run it thru the embossing machine. I do this to create a deep set embossing. Set aside to dry.

2. Next, create the shape of the Rocket Popsicle twice on the white cardstock. Keep one sold and the other cut into three sections. Now,  trim a 2" piece of the following three colors of  Rinea Patriotic Foil Paper. Then, adhere the sections of the Rocket Popsicle to the back of the Rinea Patriotic Foil Paper - Ruby Red Starstruck, Silver Starstruck and Sapphire Blue Starstruck. Then, trim. Next, adhere the foil popsicle pieces on top of the sold white popsicle. (optional - if you do not want any white edges - this is when you color them. I used Sharpie markers).  

    

3. On the front of the finished Rocket Popsicle stamp the face from the Avery Elle stamp set. (if you do not have this set you can draw the face on with a Black Sharpie). Now, on the back side of your popsicle adhere your mini popsicle stick. 

 

4. Next, stamp your sentiment on the leftover white cardstock from the popsicle. Set aside. Now, on the back of your popsicle and the sentiment place your foam adhesive. Set aside. Next, adhere your front panel - the embossed cardstock on the card base. Then, place the Rinea Foiled Popsicle in angle. Place the sentiment on the card.

You now have a finished card! I can't wait to see your card be sure to share your creation with us on social media. Thank you for stopping by today!!
