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??
