Global Design Project 179

Happy Sunday.  We have finally had a day of beautiful spring weather.  Plus one of my favorite days, daylight savings time.  Losing the hour is a bummer but the longer days is so worth  it.

I had a post just about finished to post earlier this week about paper pumpkin.  My employer had other ideas.  I had to work so much this week I could not get it finished.  So Sorry.

The Global Design Project today is a really sweet theme, literally.

I went a little out of the box with this one, but I love the results.  Don't you love it when a card idea actually turns out the way you want it to.  The stamp set Swirly Bird is from the Annual Catalog.  I was looking through my stamp sets and when I saw this one, I immediately thought of the large lollipops that swirl around in lots of bright, fun colors.

Other than the sentiment there is no stamping on this card.  From the coordinating framelits, I cut the 2 circle images that nest together out of whisper white, highland heather, coastal cabana, pineapple punch, granny apple green and melon mambo.  I did paper piercing for the swirl colors.  I used a decorative straw (non from SU, please don't flog me) cut in half as the lollipop stick.  Then I wrapped it in a piece of scrap cellophane.  

Isn't that DSP paper so fun. It is from a suite in the Occasions Catalog called How Sweet it is.  I will link the suite below.  This card will definitely take extra postage.  The lollipop sits up about 3/8" from the card base.  It will be worth it to know it will make someone smile.  I have enough pieces of cardstock to make 5 more of the lollipops.  

I would love  for you to let me know what you think of this project.  It was really fun to put together.  Please let a comment below.  

Don't forget we are in the last month of sale-a-bration.  Be sure to get your favorites before they are gone.  Also check out the sale-a-bration coordination products that are only available during the month of March.  Click on the link in the side bar to be taken to my online store.  

I hope you all have a great week.  Happy crafting.  Jacqueline.
