Hello, it’s Karen here again. I’ve got a watermelon filled card today which just felt right on this hot summer day. I’ve used the Melon Friends stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs which has to be one of the cutest sets out there.
I stamped the images onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and then used copic markers to colour them in. I’ve listed the markers I used down below. I ended up stamping about three of the dinosaurs and two of the bears. I used circle dies in different sizes to cut areas out of the images, and just tried to offset where the images were in the circles. To create the white frames, I used low tack tape to tape together the same circle die used to cut out the image, and a die that was a size smaller. I cut two of each of these frames, and glued them together before gluing them to the circle image. I saved the centers of the frames to colour in with copic markers and then added some of these between the circle images. I diecut the frame from red cardstock using the Trinity Stamps Wonky Stitched Wilderness die set and made it three layers thick. To assemble the card, I attached the red frame first, then spaced out the images and finally added in the coloured circles and the sentiment. I popped up the two larger circles on foam tape to allow everything to fit on my card. Finally, I glued the remaining images to the inside of the card along with the inside sentiment.
Thank you so much for joining me and I hope you are having a great day!
