I had a difficult time deciding which papers I was going to use for this card. I could not resist incorporating the holographic striped white cardstock and this fun and whimsical patterned paper. Since I have been playing with paste a bit lately, I decided to try making a "dole whip" cone. It just seemed perfectly fitting with the color scheme.

To create the colored paste, I added one drop of Lemonade Reinker to the Opaque Matte Paste. I like this one because it dries white, when uncolored. It is great for Santa's beard, the beard on a gnome, etc. The other pastes are great for different finishes. 

I also created this fun shaker card using the exclusive stamp set and coordinating Thin Cuts. The best value for your money is that BIG Bundle! It is offered at such a great buy. Be sure to consider it!

Thank you very much for stopping by. Head to Wendy's Blog to see what she has to share with you. 

Happy hoppin'!
