Ever since I got that crazy glitter set, I’ve been looking for excuses to use it. So when Renée came into town, I decided to make her a fun birthday card to go along with the rest of her belated-birthday goodies!

popsicle card I made for Renée

I saw a similar popsicle card at the store with tiny plastic sprinkle-like dots instead of glitter…but it was $6! And also glitter is way better than sprinkles (on non-edible items at least). I bought some plain cards with matching envelopes at Target. I sketched out the shape I wanted for the popsicle and colored in the stick and popsicle with colored pencils in case the glitter didn’t provide full coverage. I used a darker brown colored pencil to make the stick look like wood. I used plain Elmer’s glue because I didn’t have a glue stick or anything less-thick (I will need to pick up thinner glue for future projects, since the Elmer’s saturated the paper and made it wavy). I did one color at a time, letting it dry a bit before moving on. Then I did the lettering with a glue pen.

I really like how it turned out! I did have to weigh it down a bit to un-wave it, but I think it’s pretty good for a first attempt.
