Have a Sweet Birthday

While blog surfing earlier this week I came across Jenny's blog, Crafting in the Country. She had quite a few cards that took my fancy, she is such a clever lady. On one of the cards she had made three small lollipops using twine. I thought, 'What a genius and cute idea!'.

I began to think about how I could combine this with, this weeks A La Card Monkey sketch, which I'm really fond of (just in case you hadn't noticed!), and make another card for my kiddy stash.

This is what I came up with:

I decided to make one of those really big multi-coloured lollipops. I was happy with how it turned out. I used the polka dot embossing folder on the Whisper White cardstock and the paper at the bottom is from the Brights DSP stack. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set.

I used White Satin ribbon across the card, as the seam binding was too see through. But the bow is seam binding, with twine and some sticky backed Rhinestones.

I am also going to enter this card into a new challenge I found over at the Ribbon Carousel and the Birthday Sundaes circle challenge.

(All SU unless otherwise stated)
Stamp sets: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Cardstock/ DSP: Whisper White, Brights DSP Pad
Inks: Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Baker's Twine (own stash), Sticky Backed Rhinestones, Seam Binding, White Satin Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon, Modern Label Punch

Please contact me if you require any info and feel free to leave me a comment, I love reading them!

  11. Hi S. You have quite the way with twine! What a fun card. Hugs. D

  12. Such a fun card, Sarah! Love the way you made the lollipop multi-colored!

    I saw your question on my blog about what the plastic stand was for my post-it note holder. It is an acrylic frame I found at The Dollar Tree and they are 3 1/2 x 5. The pen you see in the picture are the Pentel RSVP pens and I was able to place some patterned paper inside the pen to help match the project. I used regular sized post it notes and adhered it to the frame with one strip of Sticky Strip. I slipped the patterned paper behind the frame and then decorated the rest in a snap!

    Hope that helps and thanks for visiting my blog!

  13. Sarah,
