Thanks A Melon! Card



Hi, Everyone!

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying your summer! It's been really hot here so I decided that I would stay inside and play in my hobby room!

I've been wanting to make a card using this cute saying and finally got around to it! The watermelon on the Simply Charmed cartridge is soooo cute so I knew he would be the one I used. I didn't have the saying in a rubber stamp so I used a cut from the Just Because Cartridge. The frame is from Lacy Labels and I welded a circle on top of it to get the cutouts to look the way they do.

The card swivels open...a technique that I don't think I've ever used and I really like how it turned out. I finally used some of that great twine and the Polka Dot embossing folder. Let me know what you think!

I'm going to enter it in the following challenges:

It's adorable, Patty! Love the card shape. Don't you just love the Lacy Labels cart?! I find myself going to it more and more for mats, background shapes, and to use for stamping sentiments. Your colors are great; a terrific card!--Pat N.
