So apparently it's Watermelon Day - really there's a day/holiday for everything now. I get a kick out of when Simon Says Stamp posts graphics like this though for different "holidays" as I find them a good source of fun inspiration! If you missed the last time I made a card because I was inspired by one of their graphics you can see that post here:
So for today's card I pulled out the Funny Food set as that was a rather obvious choice for this holiday:
I combined Funny Food with CZ Designs Yays wafer dies along with Doodlebugs Sweet Summer patterned papers.
I stamped the watermelon onto Neenah Classic Crest 80ob card stock with SSS's Intense Black ink and coloured them in with Copics. I added some highlight and texture with my white Gelly Roll pen and then die cut them with the coordinating wafer die.
I added an enamel bow from a different Doodlebug collection (linked below) and added some 3mm Studio Katia Googly Eyes to the top melon - to make it "one in a melon" LOL!
I finished the inside of the card by adhering some of the printed die cut fruit shapes that come in the Doodlebug Sweet Summer Odds & Ends pack. I then die cut the SSS Happy Birthday Script die from black card stock, glued it into place and that was it!
