In 1964 the Kellogg company created a sugary, fruit filled toaster pastry which they named a Pop Tart! Over the years Pop Tarts have grown in popularity as they've come out with a wide variety of flavors. Strawberry and Brown Sugar are two of the most popular.
A wonderful young man I know named Justin recently celebrated his 30th birthday. Justin loves Pop Tarts more than any other person I know. This is no secret which was evident by the truck load of Pop Tarts he received on his birthday from many different people.
Since I was one of those people who gave him Pop Tarts I thought I would take a shot at creating a Pop Tart Card, a first for me! Since Justin has a big personality, I couldn't just make a plain Pop Tart Card, I needed to make a Pop Tart with personality!
Here is the card I created for Justin.
The base of this card was made with Crumb Cake Card Stock. Seems like the perfect name for a "on the go" breakfast pastry card. I sponged some Crumb Cake ink on the edges to give the card a toasted look. I tried to copy a Strawberry Pop Tart by adding a layer of frosting. I did this by cutting a piece of white glossy card stock and then using a pair of scissors to cut random waves around the edges. I then added the sprinkles by adhering enamel shapes in various colors all over the front of the card. I created a eyes with a 1/2 inch circle punch and a mouth with a 3/4 inch circle punch. I added two Basic Black strips of card stocks for arms which held wording that I got from the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set.
Since a Strawberry Pop Tart has filling, I made sure to add a layer of Pink Pirouette Card Stock to the inside of the card that I stamped with the words, "Happy Birthday" from the same Birthday Delivery Stamp Set.
It was really fun creating this card for Justin because he is a very creative person whom I know would appreciate the creation of a card that replicated his favorite "go to" snack that he consumes morning, noon and night!
I think this card is cute and sweet. It was fairly simple to make and has zero calories!
Since Justin received such a large amount of Pop Tarts on his special day makes me think a more appropriate greeting for this card should have been, "Hip Hip Horray, More Pop Tarts Are On The Way"!!!
I guess Justin will be eating Pop Tarts for Days!!! I am quite sure he will enjoy every single minute!
Happy Birthday Justin!
