Lollipop Birthday

Hi Friends and Happy Monday! I have a rainbow lollipop birthday card for you this week using the Sweeter Than 3×4 Stamp Set, Narrow Card with Envelop Die Set. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Ocean Reef Scene Builder Stamp Set. For the gobstopper card border, I used my favorite Vivid Bright Paper Nonpareils Embellishment Mix and Creamy Vanilla Heart Sprinkle Embellishments.

To create the card panel, I die cut the narrow scalloped card from white card stock. Then I trimmed a piece of black card stock to 2.5 x 5.5 inches so it fit perfectly on the narrow scalloped card. I also thought the black card stock would let the brightly colored images of the candy pop off the card.

For a fun gobstopper border, in rainbow order, I added vivid bright paper nonpareils into each scallop with Creamy Vanilla Heart Sprinkles at the corners. 

For for the card panel design, I stamped the lollipop images from Sweeter Than with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper. Then I watercolored the lollipops with a rainbow of Zigs Clean Color Brush Pens. When the coloring was done I fussy cut the images and added a little dimension with white gel pen. Then I gathered the images into lollipop bouquets and attached together with tiny glue dots. 

The Happy Birthday (which is actually two separate stamps—which makes it extremely versatile to work with) was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Then I added the lollipop bouquets to both sides of the sentiment and adhered the black embossed card design to the narrow scalloped card.

To finish the card, I found a piece of 6×6 rainbow paper from my paper pad collection/stash/hoard scored it in half and then adhered the narrow scalloped card to the rainbow card base. Then I found some matching text paper (in very HOT PINK) to create my envelope which perfectly fits the 3×6 card and it is super easy to make. All you have to do is die cut the envelope front and two flaps and with score-tape or other strong adhesive, you adhere the envelope together. 

So there we are friends, I bright and cheerful Lollipop Birthday card that I can’t wait to attach to a gift for a birthday party celebration. I hope you enjoyed my design today and can’t wait to see you next week. Until then, you can see all my projects on Instagram @popsofpaper or on my blog.

Big Paper Hugs!
