Thanks A Melon
My second card was created for the latest Just Us Girls and Paper Players challenges. I created my card by layering some pretty floral patterned paper from the Pebbles Be Mine 6x6 paper pad onto my white card base. I then created a focal panel using Stampin' UP early espresso and Staples heavy weight white cardstocks. I created a pretty open scalloped border at the bottom of the panel using a Fiskars punch. I stamped the sentiment using Gina K passionate pink ink and a Studio G alphabet stamp set. To create my watermelons I die cut some scalloped circles using a Spellbinders die. I then layered on white circles that I die cut using a Spellbinders circle die. Using a smaller pierced edge My Favorite Things die I die cut some more patterned paper from the same paper pad and layered them onto the circle stacks and then cut them in half. To complete my card I layered the watermelons in a wonky pattern using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I hope you like it!
