Punch Art Popsicles!

It is sometimes quite funny where we card makers find inspiration for future projects. I was purchasing some  koolaid popsicles for my granddaughter Kaitlynn a few weeks ago and sitting beside those popsicles were twin stick popsicles. I remember those as a child and how we used to "split" them with our friends or siblings. The first thing that came to mind when I spotted these popsicles was "hey, I can make those with punch art! And here is what I came up with:

And they came out just like I envisioned in my first attempt. Now that I like! I used the "Word Window Punch" and cut 2 of each color. For the "sticks" continued to use the "Word Window Punch" but cut on the edge of my cardstock and only cut 1/2 pieces:

I glued them together by using 2 "Stampin' Dimensionals" where they meet together. I added the swirls at the top with my white gel pen.

I used the "Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies" for a skinny strip and sponged the edges and below you will see a trio of "Candy Dots":

How neat to add a sentiment that is appropriate for an anniversary or wedding! I hope you think my popsicles are cute!
