THANKS A MELON CUTTLEBUGSPOT




Good morning everyone
Well winter is upon us in Wales there was ice on the cars early this morning when I was seeing Connor off to school. Time to break out the scarf and gloves I think! Hope everyone is keeping warm :)
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to make a card using fruits. I decided to use a melon and using a fab download from Pink Petticoat here is my card.
All papers are Pink Petticoat download. The card is 6x6" and the scalloped mat is one of my new Nellie's dies which I love as it matches the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch which I used for the middle strip so well. The white panel in the centre has been cuttled with a stripey CB embossiing folder which I just got and is part of the shapes folders set which is exclusive to 'Oh My Crafts'. I cut the melon 3 times, pop dotted it twice then for the 3rd layer I just cut out the edge of the melon and cuttled again with the same folder, I used my Sakura clear glaze pen to glaze the seeds of the melon and added some pink ribbon from Hobbycraft. The sentimet is computer generated font is Curlz mt.
Thanks as always for taking a peek and be sure to visit the Cuttlebugspot and check out the DT's fabulous creations and why not join us for a chance to win a £15 voucher from the Craftbarn!
Have a great week!
