So Sweet! Watermelon Shaped Card

I was in need of a thank you card, so I thought I would make a card fit for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 70 - Melon Time!
Here's my card:

  • Watermelon cut from Cricut Designer's Calendar Cartridge, welded on my Gypsy
  • Tag from Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge page 35 using the Tags creative feature
  • Recollections black cardstock for base; red, green & white cardstock scraps from stash
  • "So Sweet" sentiment from Scrappy Moms' Happily Ever After stamp set
  • Black Versa Ink, Ranger clear embossing powder & Marvy Uchida embossing gun
  • "Thank You!" and "Sweet Friend" sentiments from Scrappy Moms' Simple Sentiments stamp set (exclamation on Thank You! not inked up; handwritten comma added instead)
  • Maraschino red baker's twine from Scrappy Moms
  • Stampin' Up Crystal Effects for glossy look on watermelon seeds
  • Xmas Red and Lime Green Stickles (think I like them a bit?!)
That's about it for my card. Hopefully I can get one more project in by the end of the weekend. I hope your weekend is fun and full of craftiness, too!

Oh, and don't forget about my 100  Follower Giveaway! Get me to 3 digits and I'm mailing out a Christmas stamp set! :)
