A Sweet Treat

Hi everyone!  I feel like I've been neglecting you all and just making cards or other projects for design team project days or guest designer spots.  I decided on a whim to make a really quick and simple card using SVG Attic's Ethan's Cool Treats Collection.  This isn't for my design team spot or anything, just felt like making something that wasn't complicated!  Plus, it's HOT and I have been craving ice cream lately.

Popsicle shape card

First off, I didn't notice the white part of the pink popsicle wasn't glued down all the way until the picture were already taken.  Don't judge me for that!!  Hehe.

I made this card to fit into an A2 size envelope.  I made a shadow layer of two of the popsicles together and welded it in MTC to make the base of the card.  If you notice I welded it on the wrong side...uh, I meant to do that *wink*wink*.  I glued the paterned paper and the orange popsicle to the base and used pop up squares to attach the pink popsicle.  If you notice with all my cards I have to have some dimension.  I don't like flat cards or layouts.  I used kraft paper for the popsicle sticks and inked the edges of the pink and orange popsicles. 

With this new MTC (3.3.2?) I was able to cut more accurately on my Silhouette mat because now there's a Sil mat on there!  Woohoo!  No more wasting paper.  It wasn't much waste but I like to know exactly where it's going to start cutting. 

Look for my guest designer spot this Thursday.  I made something super duper sweet for that project!
