Watermelon Hello

To me, watermelons = summer. Just love them - love eating them, love stamping them! My kitchen has lots of different watermelon decorations, too. In fact, when I need new kitchen towels, etc. I always look for green or red.

This is a fun long and skinny card (8 x 3-1/4") with a cheery hello at the bottom. The watermelons are all stamped on white and cut out to be layered on the colored panels. The middle watermelon has black gingham ribbon tied around it and is popped up on foam squares.

And, you can't see it in this photo, but I used Liquid Glass on the black seeds.

(All designs and supplies are Close To My Heart, except the ribbon.)
