Cricut Watermelon card

Cricut Watermelon card
Quick and Easy

Hello, friends!

I am starting to send out the annual catalogs along with the holiday supplement this week. You cannot order anything out of either catalog until September 1st. There are three exceptions though and I will give more information about these things August 1st. Any guesses on what will be for sale starting Saturday? Exciting stuff is coming, so get ready, folks!

Today, I have a card that I made for the Bitten By the Bug blog using Just Because Cards, Four Seasons Home Decor, and Anna Griffin Soiree Lettering. This week's challenge called for us to make something using a watermelon. I just love how cheerful and colorful watermelon slices are, so I chose this one!

As an embellishment for this card, I used sequins. Now listen, if you like these, you should get them soon. They are retiring at the end of August!

If you have an Explore, here is the file: Cricut Watermelon card

If you do not have a Cricut Explore, here are the sizes:
watermelon slice (Just Because Cards) - 1 3/4"
'melon' (Anna Griffin) - 3/4"
'thanks a' (Four Seasons Home Decor) - 3/4"

What a fabulous melon card Melanie! I love the color combo, your melon looks so good, love the fonts you used and I love that you put your melon on a circle shape and then on the square card base. Hugs, Brenda

Melanie this card is so stickin' cute that it ALMOST gave me brain freeze on creating a watermelon project. I saw this before doing my project and wanted to just throw in the towel. It is so cute. Great job, girlie!!
