AAA Cards #96 - Summer Fun

The new AAA Cards challenge #96 starts today and it is all about Summer fun!

Summer... that means hot days and hanging out with family and friends... and of course cooling down by eating ice cream/popsicles :) Which brings me to my card.

I love playing around with distress inks, so for this card I took Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron and blended them across a piece of cardstock. Then I die cut the main portion of the popsicle and the 'sweet' word out of it. The stick to the popsicle was die cut from some kraft cardstock I had. I adhered them to a panel of white cardstock and then stamped the "you're so" at the bottom. I did spray some water mixed with perfect pearls on the popsicle to give it a shimmery look too.

The border is the remainder of the cardstock that I had cut the dies out of. It seemed a waste not to use it so I trimmed the white panel slightly and adhered it to the inked up cardstock.

For more inspiration, please check out the rest of the design team and out guest designer Ishani. They've come up with some great cards for summer fun! This challenge is being sponsored by Happy Little Stampers who are giving a $20 gift certificate as a prize :)
