Have a Great Day ...!

Hello!  I am back today to share my card I made for my stepgranddaugter who is turning 12.  I obviously have the Inky Antics honey pop cards on my brain, because not only did I do one for her, but it is one of the cards I am teaching in my class next week, and I want to do one of them for my hubby later this week.  It is just that they are so easy to make and I feel like the recipient gets to smile twice, once when they see the outside and again when they see the pop on the inside!  For today's card, I used the birdy/cupcake one that I have used before, but this time I roughly cased a card that I love here.  Ever since I saw Broni's card, I new I wanted to "case" it because I love how she had the birdy and the cupcake stamp on the front of her card.  Let me show you mine ... enjoy!

The Front

The Inside

Close-Up of the Honeycomb pop
It's pretty cute, huh?  The only problem I had was with the cherry honeycomb.  I had to redo it because the first one just wasn't opening right.  I think it was because it is such a small little piece to get the glue stick on both sides.  You see in the above pic that yellow circle by the cupcake, it got placed there because when I pulled off the first messed up cherry, I had glue residue on the card that I couldn't get off ... so ... my fix is to put something over it!  When I added the third circle on the bottom right side, I figured no one would ever know, well, except you!  How do you like my card?

Very cute. I never would have known there was a problem with the glue residue since you covered it over with the circle. Now EVERYBODY knows!!!

Oh, Tina, this is so, so cute!! Thanks for casing my card! I love how you said with the Honey Pop cards that you get to smile twice...once for the outside and again for the inside. How true!! I hope your class has just as much fun with the Honey Pops as I did!!
