Cool Popsicle Card

It's been so-o-o-o hot here that I just had to create a 'cool' card to make my craftroom seem less like an oven.  Here's what I came up with using a Sizzix die set, some Queen and Co. sprinkles, Mister Huey spray, washi tape and Ranger Glossy Accents. The American Crafts double-sided card stock with popsicle print really helped to pull the theme together.
After die cutting the almost life-sized popsicle, I applied some Hero Arts ombre ink to the die-cut card stock before adding Glossy Accents and sprinkles. To add more shimmer I sprayed it with the iridescent Mister Huey and let it dry before gluing on the 'popsicle sticks' which were die cut with the same die. I liked both stamp sayings in the Sizzix set so I decided to use them on two similar cards. Most of the supplies should be for sale at HM Ben Franklin Crafts so be sure to head to the nearest store so you can make a 'cool' card, too.

Oh boy, you can say that again. Even where we live on higher elevation, it's been quite hot. Your card is definitely "cool and refreshing." Hope the trades will return soon.

Your card made me smile thinking of my grandson yesterday. He was so hot he was begging me for a popsicle. He would love a card like this, TFS!
