Watermelon card





I was inspired to create this sweet card by a card I saw here. When I opened the link and discovered that the creator had stamped all the layers I was shocked. I loved the look and had assumed it was paper layers, made with punches. I still was intrigued to attempt to create a similar look with paper. Scraps no less. Love that!

So once again I opened up my Cricut Design studio software and set to work. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I cut scalloped ovals out of green scrap, larger ovals out of white scrap and slightly smaller ovals from different pieces of red scraps. I also built into the Cricut .cut file the red scallop with dots layer and the white layer of the card topper design, all using George basic shapes and Mini monograms cartridges.



Here is a close up of the paper pieced watermelons. I glued all the layers together and then cut them in half. Then layered them out across the white paper, stamped my sentiment and layered it all on the tent card base.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
