A Sweet Surprise!

The lovely Kelly was the hostess for May's Sisterhood swap. Her challenge was for us to create cards that represented the sweetness of the Sisters and that gave a hint at a surprise inside. I wanted to do something with the "Sweet Stuff" lollipop stamp from SU's Very Punny set, so I hopped over to the SCS Resources to look for something to hold a sweet surprise. That's where I found this awesome Free Standing Pop-Up Card.

I stamped flowers in Versamark on the outside of the Regal Rose cards and punched scallops for the front and tag from the yummy Berry Sweet DP by K&Company. The lollipops were stamped on DP and cut out for some more color, and this pink-and-green stitched ribbon coordinated perfectly.

The tag sentiment was punched from the center of a stamp from SU's So Many Scallops, and a lime green grommet holds the scallop to the Swiss Dots embossed panel.

To open them, simply hold the base, pull the tag, and TA-DA!
It's the sweet surprise!

I really liked making these cards and hope the Sisters who get them enjoy opening them!

Happy Creating!
