My first lollipop card

I learnt about "lollipop cards" over at a Norwegian website - Ett Trykk.
Apparantly these cards are  everywhere at the mo, but I just learnt about them.

So decided to give it a go, using an image that came free with a magazine, popped it onto die cuts made with dies I received from Mervi and rosettes made with a Tim Holtz die.

I added three die cut stars and banners made with Lawn Fawn dies, stamped birthday greetings on them and added ribbons, twine and a button from my stash.

The back looks just the same as the front, a part from having no image, just a white circle to add a greeting for the receiver.

This card is also for:
Ett Trykk - Lollipop cards
Fab 'n' Funky - #290 All Creatures Great and Small
House of Cards - Shaped card

I had never heard before of these lollipop cards, wow, such a pretty way to make a "card"!!! I just adore it, it's really lovely! Your first try looks striking with the rosette,the banners and the jeans lace!!! The dp of the rosette is so lovely and like so much the colours combo, it's perfect for any age and for male and female! This is a little masterpiece, Pia! Very well done!!
...Cute bear and nice little stars, too!
I pinned your lollypop card:D

Well, until now, I didn't know about Lollipop cards either! This is adorable, and love the cutie bear in the center with the mat layers and gold stars. We have a product in the USA, called Honeycomb, that you buy flat, but it opens to make a dimensional object. This doesn't look the same though. Good for you at trying a new technique, and you surely succeeded at using it beautifully. Of course I love the added buttons & twine bow with the tiny fishtail tags. TFS & Have a great week. Hugs

I have not heard of Lollipops Cards before, Pia but it so CUTE !!

Lisa Minckler said...

Now I've got that lollipop song stuck in my head, but it is worth it to see a new technique that I've never seen before. The concept is wonderful and can be placed anywhere like a vase of flowers or a cupcake or cake or wherever. I really like this idea. Beautiful work, Pia!!
Big hugs,
