About Time for a Card

I've been so caught up playing with digital images, that I haven't posted a card in a while. I have a Ridgeview Seniors card class coming up soon, so I thought I'd show you what we'll be doing.

This is a simple card, and it's not my design - I'm not sure whose it is because there are a lot of variations of it. It's a popsicle card!

Here's the inside:
A close up of the glitter. I don't have the right size circle punches, so I cut these all by hand. I tried to cut a true circle, but gosh it's hard!

And they're all ready for Ridgeview:
Well, except for the glitter, ribbon, tape and tools. As you can see, I also did some oranges, limes, apples and strawberries. I didn't have a rubber stamp for these, so I made up my own digital images.

Here's a sheet of them if you'd like to make your own. These are about 1" each if you just print them off.

I'd put a tutorial up, but ChicNScratch has a good one already HERE. It's about 6 minutes to watch.

Thanks for visiting!
