Fourth of July is just a few days away. Watermelon is a staple for the fourth celebrations all over the United States. When I was in Alaska I noticed they were featuring Watermelons too! So I decided to play with our returning color Watermelon Wonder. Hope you like it! And Happy Fourth!
Watermelon Wonder is a color that I do not ordinarily gravitate towards when designing a card. I decided that I would pair it with Crumb Cake and go with whatever felt right. That said-here it is. Crumb Cake Card Stock base layered with Affectionately yours Speciality DSP. I was immediately drawn to these complimentary patterns and they do so well with the Crumb Cake.
Second Layer is Crumb Cake with Watermelon Wonder Card Stock. The on the upper left and lower right Crumb Cake is layered with DSP and strategically placed. The sentiment is from the Hostess Stamp Set, “Basket for You” and is stamped with Watermelon Wonder Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock then die cut using the die from Bunch of Banners Framelits. Remember, you can earn this very cute Hostess stamp set free with a $150 order. I then layered it on Crumb Cake Card Stock and fussy cut around the perimeter. It is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensional’s to bring it to the forefront.
The Flowers are are from the Love and Affection Stamp Set, stamped in Watermelon Wonder on Very Vanilla Card Stock. Fussy Cut, layered on Crumb Cake and Fussy Cut again. They are also adhered using Stampin’ Dimensional’s.
The little butterfly is created by using the Bitty Butterfly Punch in DSP and Crumb Cake. Using a glue dot to assemble just slightly off center and glue dot to adhere to front of card. A Rhinestone Basic Jewel was applied for the head of the butterfly.
The inside of the card was finished by layering Affectionately Yours DSP to the base Crumb Cake Card Stock, then adhering a much smaller layer of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The corner flowers were created using the Petite Petal Punch with the DSP and Watermelon Wonder Card Stock.
