Watermelon Card (FD Polka Dot Challenge)

Hello!!  I made a cute summery card today for my project!!

This week's challenge at Frosted Designs is Polka Dots!!  All you need to do is create a project that includes Polka Dots on it and you can link up for a chance to win some Copic Markers!!

I pulled out my Gypsy and created a window card.

This card base is found on the Going Places cartridge.  It doesn't really fit with all of the vehicles, but I sure use it a lot!!  For this card, I sized it to 4 inches

I used the watermelon from Doodlecharms.  I welded the shadow piece of the watermelon (sized to 2.56 inches inside the frame of the card.

When I make a card, I usually make several of the same design to donate to my friend's card drive.  I cut out the watermelon pieces sized to 2.56 inches.  Note:  I did not use the seed cuts and forgot to hide them.  

I cut out the pieces in green and red cardstock from my stash.

I inked the edges and adhered the pieces together.

I added some stickle seeds.  I carefully made a dot and pulled the tip to make a tear drop shape.

I tied a bit of twine to the edge.  Here you can see my card base is cut out of yellow polka dotted cardstock that is white on the back side.

This card is going to my friend Pam who is recovering from surgery.  She will not be able to craft for a while and I hope this cheers her up a little!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you link up your polka dot project with us!!!
