Summer is quickly approaching! That means vacations, celebrations and most importantly, lots of FUN. If you're looking to create a card for the Summer months, get ready to dive into this how-to and make a splash!
Cardstock (Green, Hot Pink, Kraft)
Patterned Paper (Pink Pattern, Dotted Pattern)
Double-Sided Tape or Tape Runner
Epoxy Dots (Yellow)
Ink Blending Tool or Foam Sponge
Ink Pads (Green, Pink)
Permanent Marker (Black)
Ribbon (Hot Pink)
Sentiment (Journal Card)

Let's get started!
Cut an 8 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of kraft cardstock, and fold it in half to create a card base. Cut a 5" x 4" panel of dotted patterned paper and a 4 1/2" x 1" strip of hot pink cardstock. Set both aside.
In assorted sizes, die-cut two Circles out of green cardstock and two Circles out of pink patterned paper
Using an ink blending tool, ink the edges of the green and pink Circles and along the hot pink cardstock strip.
Adhere the smaller pink Circles to the larger green Circles with liquid adhesive.
Cut the layered Circles in half. Using a black marker, draw watermelon seeds on the pink half Circles. Set the watermelons aside.
Attach patterned washi tape and hot pink ribbon to the bottom of the patterned panel.
Adhere with double-sided tape the inked pink cardstock strip to the right side of the patterned panel. Adhere the patterned panel to the card front with double-sided tape.
Using small scraps of Foam Adhesive Sheets, adhere the watermelons and sentiment to the card front. Embellish with yellow epoxy dots.
