Cotton Candy Birthday Card

While shopping at HM Ben Franklin Crafts, I spotted the Avery Elle cotton candy stamp and die sets.  As a child, cotton candy was my favorite carnival treat so of course I had to purchase the sets.  It brings back wonderful memories of childhood.  To capture the fluffy spun sugar look, I glued on pink raw wool fibers.  Fluffy yarn could also be used.  I stamped the words on a dotted print card stock circle and glued that into the cotton candy. 
 Once the fluff is pushed aside the words are revealed.  I added (with foam dots) the Hero Arts stamped animals that were colored with Copic pens. Some sequins and crystal glitter were added for sparkle.
 I also used the dies to make a small tag. The bigger die was used to make the tag from a folded card stock and the smaller die cut was glued on top with the wool fibers.  I tried spray glue and Beacon glue but Crystal Lacquer worked best for adhering the glitter.
With State and County Fairs coming up,  summer is the perfect time to create a cotton candy card and tag. I hope that they bring the recipients sweet memories too.
