Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law....her birthday is tomorrow. I hope you are enjoying my WATERMELON WEEK!!!
For this card I changed my color scheme! I used Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White and Basic Black. I love these colors just as much as the Old Olive and Melon Mambo!
I used the Stripes embossing folder for the background (SORRY...I didn't realize it is retired...I NEED TO MARK MY STUFF!).
Again I used the Kind & Cozy stamp set for the watermelon. Instead of stamping the center with the circle stamp (save it...I almost threw it away), I sponged the center with Strawberry Slush ink. I cut it out with the 2 1/2" Circle punch, cut it in half and then into six wedges! I added one to the inside, but forgot to take a picture...and now it is in the mail. Use the small heart in the Owl Builder punch for the seeds!
The sentiment is from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set and I punched it out with the Word Window punch. I love the new Thick Bakers Twine. It looks adorable with the button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons pack. This card came together really quickly one I came up with a plan...give it a go!
DID YOU KNOW???
There are over 1,200 varieties of watermelon grown worldwide?
