Summer Ice Pop with Seashells Card
Based on the June/July Paper Craft Magazine, I was so excited to make this special card. It's soooo easy.Just scan the pattern from the book, sandwich the ice-cream stick, adhered the patterned paper, sticks the seashells and chipboard on the paper,glued the rick-rack ribbon, that's it!!! Simple and fun !!!
