Hi Pebbles Friends!
Happy National Watermelon Day!
Amanda here, & I thought we might celebrate this fun day with some super cute cards!
Think melons, lemons, berries & cherries – it’s a fruit salad of My Bright Life inspiration!
Oh-so-pretty! & SO many fruity possibilities within this collection! Love it!
Here’s how I created those sweet watermelon cards….
Use a metal die, digital cut file OR fussy cut your own watermelon die cuts from white cardstock. Paper piece the melons with patterns from the 6 x 6 Paper Pad.
Take a 12″ x 12″ sheet of white cardstock and trim it 10″ x 7″ to create the 5″ x 7″ card, as well as 10″ x 5″ to create the smaller square card. Score down the centers, and fold to create the card bases.
Trim the reverse side of pattern paper Retro Stripe to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ & adhere to the front of the 5″ x 7″ card. To soften the vivid lime green paper (so it doesn’t distract your eye from the watermelons) cover it with a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ sheet of clear vellum paper. Repeat this process for the smaller 5″ square card.
Foam mount a watermelon to the center of the card fronts.
Add Thickers for the card sentiments.
Embellish with a gold foil Accent Sticker & for finishing touches use black sequins, gemstones or beads to make the melon seeds.
Super simple, but oh so effective! You’re 1 in a Melon, indeed!
Using the same card bases, and other fruit pattern papers from My Bright Life, I was able to create a series of fruity cards…..
Aren’t these berry cards the sweetest?! They feature pattern paper Strawberry Picnic, as well as the 6 x 6 Paper Pad, Ephemera & Puffy Stickers. Cute!
These lemon cards are full of sunshine and include pattern papers Fresh Picked and Lemons, as well as the 6 x 6 Paper Pad, and Ephemera. Adore!
And last but by no means least, these pretty cherry cards are pink perfection! They include pattern papers Sweet Cherries and Little Thoughts, as well as the 6 x 6 Paper Pad, Ephemera, Puffy Stickers, Accent Stickers, and that fabulous Dimensional Sticker too!
Deliciously sweet & fruity cards to share with family & friends!
Happy Watermelon Day!
I hope I have inspired you to make some fruity-liscious cards!
