You're One in a Melon


Over the next two weeks, Sheetload of Cards is pairing up with the Cutting Cafe DT to make some fabulous samples using the sketch from the June issue.

My card uses the Fruit Greetings printable stamp set. This was such a fun set to play with. For this card, I chose to make a 3.75 x 8.5 size card to accomodate the size of the watermelon. Since watermelon is a summer fruit, I decided to use bright colored patterned paper to showcase the image and sentiment. Don't the papers remind of you a picnic at the park? I watercolored the image as well as covered the the inside of the watermelon with Aleene's paper glaze for more of a 3D effect. After the paper glaze dried, it made it look like such an edible snack - looks good enough to eat! This is a birthday card who will be going to one of my girlfriends who is definitely "One in a Melon."

Make sure to stop by the other DT's blogs to see their fabulous samples during the next two weeks. You'll have to come back next week to see my other sample! See you then!
