Watermelon Wonder


It's Friday! And that means that today, I'm sharing a project that I've designed for Fresh Squeezed Stamps.

I made another card for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Watermelon Wonder, which Fresh Squeezed Stamps is sponsoring.


I love watermelon! For me, watermelon equals summer. So I used the Subway Series: Summer stamp set to make my card.


I stamped my sentiment onto some woodgrain patterned paper using three shades of ink, attempting to mimic the colours of a watermelon. Then I punched some semi-circles from the sides, tied some twine and added some buttons. Then I adhered my panel to the card with some dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!

Hi, Leigh! What a perfect summery card. I just ordered some FS stamps...largely influenced by you... and a subway series set should be coming to me shortly. :) I just love all the cards you've made using these stamps. (P.S. Thanks for your sweet comment.)

Simply brilliant. Love the way you've used the stack of words to mimic how a slice of watermelon looks! Clever. And those three little buttons are perfect. Great card. Bev

Love everything about this card! You very successfully, I might add, 'mimicked the wtermelon layers'! The buttons are perfect, and I really like the semi-circle puched sides! Great idea!

What a fun card. I love how you inked your sentiment in different colors. I can't believe how many posts I have missed in the time I was gone. You have been up to some very crafty fun.
