Watermelon Mini Card




Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's Picnic Blog Hop!!!  We have a variety of Picnic inspired projects for you!

If you found me first, please go to the BEGINNING so you don't miss anything.  Below is a complete list of blogs in the hop!




When I think of a picnic,  I think of juicy slices of watermelon ~ yummy!!

I wanted to make a window card with a juicy slice, so I started with my Gypsy.

On the "card" function key in the Going Places cartridge, I found this square frame card.  I sized it to 3 inches tall.

I found this watermelon from Doodlecharms.  This watermelon fit the inside cutout area better than the other watermelons I found.  I sized the shadow of it to 1.92 and welded it inside the frame.

I added the watermelon layers to my mat, all sized to 1.92. 

I used cardstock from my scrap file to cut out my pieces. 

When I cut out the red layer I realized there were no seed cut outs.  I re-cut the red layer and trimmed off the rind.

In order to use patterned paper on the front of my card, I copied the card on my mat and positioned it off the mat.  This allowed me to cut just a little more than the front of the card.  I trimmed the extra off and adhered it to the front.

I inked the green layer with green ink.

I adhered the layers on the card.

I put glossy accents on the seeds and tied twine around the left side.

What is your favorite picnic food??

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Your next stop is the Awesome APRIL!
