Double Dipper~~

Happy Saturday to you! Have big plans for the weekend? I have a ton of work to do here at camp....sadly stamping is not on my agenda this weekend (but I will try to sneak something in......)

This card is a CASe of a swap I saw at my up lines house last week. I am sorry to not be able to give proper credit to the owner of the idea! I did not take any info off the back (bad stamper, bad!)

This was so simple and easy to put together. I started with Only Orange CS cut to a tent fold, added a layer of white CS 1/4 inch smaller on all sides, added the greeting, and then the Popsicles. For those, I used a 2x3 inch piece of Only Orange CS, folded it in half, used a corner rounder on all four sides, and added the sticks (one popsicle stick cut in half) with sticky tape (there it is again.....do you have yours?) then finished if off by accenting with my white Signo Gel Pen (SU) and voila! Super easy! I can see this card with Real Red, Gable Green, Yo Yo Yellow, Pixie Pink, Lavender Lace.......any color a popsicle would be!

Recently at a Stamp Club meeting here at my house, I was called a "Craft Nerd" for pointing out a current trend in stamping. This is a title I wear proudly now! Craft Nerd.....thanks Michele! So, I would like to point out a trend in paper crafting. Decorating the INSIDE of the card slightly! On this one, all I did was add a layer of white CS to make it easier to add a hand written note, but there are lots of ways to simply and quickly add interest to the inside. Look for more on that in future posts.

Why not eat a popsicle today before summer is gone gone gone and we are looking at Hot Cocoa! Hey....that gives me an idea.......
