I was originally going to use flowers just like the sketch but then I looked at my stamp sets and I realized I am so excited for summer to get here that I wanted to use this great popsicle from Mouthwatering.
I found the best way to ink up the popsicles for good coverage was to ink them with the popsicle part on the ink pad, then color the stick with a marker. I tried using markers on the whole thing, but the coverage was not great and they got lines from the marker strokes. I was much happier with the result using the ink pads. For the scoring at the bottom I used the Simply Scored and did some horizontal lines so I could add the scallops at the bottom and ensure that they would be straight. The horizontal lines also gave me a reference point for my three rows of baker's twine. I thought this sentiment from You Are Loved was just perfect for my sweet treats. :) Here is a close up of the Border's Scoring that I did. I am pretty much addicted to it already and I've only had it for two days. It is just a really add way to really jazz up a card!
