Sweet Popsicle Card!

I found a similar design while browsing the internet and adapted it to suit the equipment and materials I had available.
How to make this card:
1. Cut a piece of coloured card so it measures 16cm (6 5/16") x 13cm (5 1/8") and fold in half lengthways. Using a corner punch, punch the 4 corners (punch corners while card is closed).
2. Cut 2 pieces of white card so each piece measures 11.5cm (4 1/2") x 6.5cm (2 9/16"). Using a corner punch, punch all the corners off on each piece of white card.
3. Glue a popsicle stick on the inside (where you usually write in a card) leaving about 4.5cm of popsicle stick protuding from the bottom of the card. Glue one of the pieces of white card overtop the popsicle stick, hiding it. Glue the other piece of white card onto the front of the card.
4. Using a Circle Scallop Edged Punch, punch out the corner of the card imitating a bite.
5. Embellish as you please.

I have used my own orange and white card, local craft store ribbon and Stampin Ups Circle Scallop Punch.
