This week at Fantabulous Cricut, the challenge was "Melon Time" (Make a project with fruit or a melon on it). I made an invitation with some napkin holders.
Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Cardstock: White, Green, Red, Black and Green Checked Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Stretch Your Imagination Watermelon, page 34 (Base, Layers Base and Blackout Base)
Cut at 3 1/2" for Invitation and 2" for Napkin Rings
1/2" wide Green cardstock strips for Rings (Adjust length for size of napkins)
Cricut Design Studio (To cut multiple melons at the same time)
Glossy Accents (on seeds)
White Pigment Ink (to make the "Rind' on Melon)
EK Success Scallop Circle Punch (for "teeth" marks)
Fairly easy project so you can make several invitations and napkin rings without too much trouble. I wish the photos showed how shiny the seeds look from the Glossy Accents. I even added it to the small melons. For another idea, you could change the sentiments and make this into a "Thank You" Card...quick and easy.
Haven't been around cause things are still crazy around here...I was hoping it would be back to normal by now. I thought my hours were going to change at work, however, they haven't as of yet. We'll see when it happens.
Just so you know, two of my sons are trying to kill me (lol)...My youngest bought a motorcycle (yikes) AND on the same week, my youngest and my middle sons went skydiving (double yikes). I could never do it!!!
Proof that they made it back safe.
The garden is thriving...tomatoes of every size, cucumbers, peppers, and string beans. I did finally get all my flowers planted (only took 2 months longer than expected). Now I just hope that the heat wave we are in right now doesn't kill them.
I have felt that my creative juices were on vacation for quite a while also. (Too bad that they didn't take me as well). However, I am seeing glimmers that they are returning...so thank you for being patient.
Hope you have a great week...
imagine what you could do.....
