Hot Weather Treat

Happy August 1!  Before we know it, summer will be over.  Our hot days in Georgia make juice bars are nice way to cool off.  I say juice bars because they are healthier than popsicles - LOL! This is one of the few times I've actually created duplicate cards. I think I may do this more often in the future.

Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored one orange and one grape - my two favorite flavors.  I stamped the swiped background - I love how it looks.  Then I fussy cut the juice bars, coated them with some clear Wink of Stella and popped them up using foam tape. I stamped the sentiment, glued the panel to a white card base and done! This was a fun card to make.
