April Stamp Club Card

I am pretty sure I found this layout on the lime doodle blog.  She has some really nice clean and simple cards.  Easy to CASE exactly or step it up a notch with more layers. 

As you can obviously see, I used the watermelon image from the Mouthwatering stamp set.  Unfortunately you cannot smell the watermelon scent of the embossing powder.  The ironic thing is that I do not like watermelon or the real or fake scent and flavour of this fruit.  But for some strange reason I just had to buy the e.p. so I could use it with this stamp.  So, even though I don't eat watermelon, I really like the look of this card.  :)

Here are the deets....

Embossing Watermelon image:

Colour stamp using Riding Hood Red and Old Olive Marker.  Stamp on Whisper White scrap card stock.  

Tip:  Use the 2-1/2" Circle Punch to punch out watermelon. (Or you can just use scissors to cut it out.  :)  )  Then use scissors to cut straight edge of watermelon.

Place stamped image directly on Versamark ink pad and gently tap so that entire piece gets covered with Versamark ink.  

Cover with embossing powder (Watermelon Scented used here) and heat.  

There seems to be a lot of cards out there with a banner on the card.  If the banner is not too wide, you can always use your square punch to make the bottom edge into the two flags or points.  This card stock was wider and I didn't want to measure where the center of the card was and then have to cut it out.  So I used a label framelit to cut off the bottom edge of the card stock.

 Banner Tag using a Framelit Die

All you need to do is place your card stock on your Big Shot and place the top edge of the Labels framelit on the bottom edge of the card stock.  Make sure it lines up evenly and then run it through.
