Technique Tuesday – Lollipop Card!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!! That means I have a fabulous Technique to share with you! This is a great way to use up some scrap pieces of cardstock that you have laying around and it is SUPER CUTE!

Lollipop Card, www.LaurasStampPad.comI love this card because of the bright colors and the fun that a lollipop brings!!! And this card is super simple…..besides the spacing of the lollipop circles which took me 3 times to finally get it right! 🙂

Supplies Needs: Crumb Cake Cardstock for card base, White Chalk Marker, scraps of white and various colors of cardstock, 1 inch Circle Punch, & Ribbon

I punched 11 different colors of cardstock with my 1 inch Circle Punch. You could do all shades of one color or lots of different colors! Then I took a 2 inch Circle Punched Piece (you could use any piece of scrap paper), find the center and then start attaching your circles. I held a pencil at the center point and made sure all of my circles touched that pencil point, this way I was sure I was going in a circle. I did have some troubles with my spacing which will vary depending on how many circles you use and all so I don’t have a spacing amount to share with you. I will say that when you start putting the circles down, don’t use a ton of adhesive in case you need to re-position. At the end which attaching it to my card, I added lots of dimensionals for extra adhesive and to POP it up! I added a little knot of ribbon around the lollipop stick (which is just cardstock). You could use a dowel rod but that will make it hard to mail. For the border, I used my Chalk Marker to add dash marks! I love how this adds a cute border without adding layers!!!! I hope you enjoyed this card and try it out! Be on the lookout for more great cards that use up your leftover scraps!

Happy Stampin’
