Melon Mambo Melons!!

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by!

Today I am going to share with you a project I made for one of my downline whose birthday I missed while I was on vacation! Hi Judy!! We've been blowing through the watermelon here at the Fortuna house and so I was in a watermelon mood and thought I'd play around with my punches and make some! I made a set of four cards to go inside a super cute card box. To make my card I started with a Whisper White card base, added a panel of Melon Mambo and another of Whisper White. I stamped the sentiment from the Heard from the Heart stamp set (#111644) in Black Stazon and made my watermelons using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch on Glorious Green and the 1 3/8" Circle Punch on Melon Mambo and cutting them in half. I punched a "bite" out of the watermelon slices with the edge of my Scallop Circle Punch and colored seeds with my Black SU Marker. Simple Simple Simple!
My box is made using Melon Mambo and Whisper White with a touch of Glorious Green on the top. I tied it closed with some of the yummy Polka Dot Ribbon also in Melon Mambo. I found the directions for my box on Splitcoast HERE.

So what do you think? Almost good enough to eat! ;)
I didn't forget about the blog candy! Check back on Friday, you won't want to miss it!!
