Thank You Cards

You’re So Sweet

I love this big Sweet stamp from Concord & 9th’s Orange You Sweet set and it gave me a reason to pull out one of my favorite Hero Arts ink colors.

I started by putting together the two watermelon pieces which consists of separate stamps that create the outline, circle, and seeds.  I used Hero Arts Fresh Lawn for the rind, Hero Arts Pale Tomato (my favorite!) for the flesh, and Versafine Onyx Black for the seeds.  I die cut the two pieces as well as a few extra plain white circles out of heavier and inexpensive 110# cardstock.  I cut one of the watermelon pieces in half and layered it with the extra pieces of white cardstock, cut in half, to give it some dimension.

For the card front, I cut down a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die from My Favorite Things.  Then I stamped the sentiments using the same Pale Tomato and Onyx Black inks.

I adhered the watermelon pieces in place, and then stamped the juice drops and added some Ranger Glossy Accents to give them a truly juicy look.

To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized piece of gray cardstock and then glued it to an A2-sized white card base.

I know it’s only spring, but I’m already looking forward to watermelon season!
