Watermelon Shape Card

I had a request on how I made the watermelon card (shown in my craft show picture). These are not the exact same colors, but the design is generally the same. For this card I used stamps from three different sets from Stampin' Up (all retired), All the Best, Fruity Phrases and Fun with Shapes. The ink color is Wild Wasabi and Cranberry Crisp. The paper color was Wild Wasabi and Real Red. I cut the watermelon shape from wild wasabi green on the fold (so the card lifts up). A smaller center part of the watermelon was cut in red. (Both are sponged on the edges). The green part of the rind is made with a stamp from the set All the Best. The seeds are made with a stamp from Fun with Shapes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love the little tutorial you posted for the watermelon card. Last year you posted a flip flop note card that I also loved and tried to case. Thanks for all your inspiration.
