WaCkY for WaTerMeLoN !!

I love watermelon. How about you? So refreshing and good for you ~especially during these hot summer days! So who wouldn't love to make this adorable Watermelon card... or better yet, who would love to receive this adorable Watermelon card!!!

Found this on Debbie Henderson's blog.... and here's how she did it... Start out with a piece of Wild Wasabi Cardstock cut at 6" x 5 1/2" and folded in half on the 6" side. From the Oval Framelets packet, use the largest framelit which has scallops on the oval shape and cut through both layers, leaving the fold intact. 
The 2nd step was to cut a half-oval using Whisper White Cardstock and the oval 2 sizes smaller. Glue to the front of your Wild Wasabi layer and trim to fit.
Step 3 uses the 2013-2015 In Color Pack Stack and cut a half-oval using the next size smaller than the white layer.
In order to make the watermelon seeds so that they would show up large enough, she used the Bird Punch and punched out a few leaves in Basic Black Cardstock and trimed off some of the leaf, then glued them in place. How cool is that? She created the bite at the top of the watermelon by using the 7/8 Scallop Circle Punch!

She made another single-layer watermelon and cut it up to get two wedges out of it and glued the two wedges to the front of the watermelon with Stampin' Dimensionals. She finished her card by adding a sentiment from the stamp set Sketched Birthday inked in StazOn Jet Black Ink and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies.

Now if that doesn't inspire you to go make a watermelon card, maybe it will at least  inspire you to go eat a watermelon!!

Have a wonderful refreshing weekend everyone!
