Summer is Here! Watermelon Slice Birthday Card

Pin It Now! In celebrating the official kickoff of summer, I have a juicy, sweet watermelon card to share!
Complete with punched watermelon seeds that are glazed with Dazzling Details, and a big chomp taken out.

White organza ribbon tied around the front, and a layered "Happy Birthday" tag. 
Since it's a slightly smaller card than a standard A2, I created a custom sized envelope with SU's Envelope Punch Board.  The little watermelon on the envelope front is made with the Kind and Cozy stamp set, and the seeds are hand drawn with a Stampin' Write Marker. So cute!
To create this card, start with 3 concentric circles, one slightly smaller than the next.  I used my really old Creative Memories circle cutters - it was the "medium outside" set, if that makes sense to any of you!

A 1-3/4" scallop circle punch makes the teeth marks :D.  I had to punch the white and pink separately from the Wild Wasabi card base because it was too thick to punch together. 
The seeds are the smallest heart in this heart trio, each one hand trimmed as shown.  
Finishing them off with Dazzling Details makes them look SO real.  Amazing!
Thanks for stopping by!

Have a blessed and creative day!
