This card is for today's Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge, summer treats. Right off the bat, this theme made me think of those giant lollipops that they had at the zoo when I was a child. I had seen a beautiful punch art card on Splitcoast made by slfarrell. You can see her card here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2226824 . I added a different greeting and a Real Red Glimmer Brad and here is what I came up with.
The base is Crumb Cake card stock, and I used a Crumb Cake card front too. I used a paper piercing tool and the Essentials Paper Piercing pack on the card front. The lollipop is made of 1" circles punched out of the following cardstocks; Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, Summer Starfruit, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Real Red, Perfect Plum, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue. I assembled them with one of the self adhesive Shaker Frames as a base, and when it was assembled I added a Real Red Glimmer Brad from the Brights package. I made the stick by rolling up a 2.5x3" sheet of printer paper. I had to roll it about three times to break down the fibers a bit and get it to be a tight enough roll. Then I glued it shut with Mulitpurpose Liquid glue. I tied a little strip of Daffodil Delight 1/8" taffeta ribbon around the stick and then glued it onto the card with Mulitpurpose Liquid glue. As a finishing touch I stamped the greeting from the Tiny Tags set in Pacific Point on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with the jewelry tag punch and attached it by the ribbon using a glue dot.
The inside is pretty simple, I just stamped the candy image from Sweets for the Sweet along the bottom in Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Perfect Plum. Then I added a greeting (inked in Pacific Point) from the Curly Cute set.
