Hello Crafters,

We have reached the end of the traditional summer and I wanted to make a final salute to summer card to share using the Hedgehog Hollow monthly box. It is loaded with great summer products to create cards. This card is all about the best summer fruit there is. It is made with the multilayered watermelon stencil and summertime printed paper. This card will be a standard A-2 card (5.5” x 4.25”).

This is a simple and easy card. I started by cutting all the papers into the appropriate sizes based on which layer each is. The watermelon paper layer is from the ‘At the Picnic’ included in the monthly box. The other layers are solids in coordinating colors. On the white layer the watermelon multi-layered stencil created an excellent slice of melon. The stencil turns out a great image ever time by following the normal stenciling procedure.

The next step is to choose a sentiment and stamp it in a coordinating color. This sentiment is part of the ‘Hot Off the Grill’ Stamp Set included in the box. In addition to the boxed sentiment I cut a black band and a red/watermelon band to be used with the sentiment.

Lastly, it is time to assemble all the pieces to create the card. All layers are glued together and the sentiment was attached using foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension. The last addition was to add a few sequins to finish the card.
