3.    Stamp the Sweet Sorbet CS piece randomly with seed images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Glue to the center of a 2” x 5-1/4” piece of Basic White CS.  Mount to the center of the front flap of the card base.

4.    Stamp a sentiment of choice in the center of a 2-3/4” square piece of Basic White CS, favored toward the right edge.  Glue the white square to the center of the Basic Black 3” square.  Wrap a 11” piece of ribbon around the left end of the square; tie a knot in the top corner.  Mount the left back side of the square over the center right edge of the front card base flap.

5.    Stamp two (2) half-size watermelon slices, one (1) quarter size watermelon slice, and the top 1” of one (1) quarter size watermelon slice in Sweet Sorbet ink on Thick White CS. Stamp below each piece with coordinating rind stamp image in Shaded Spruce ink.  Hand-trim each watermelon piece.

6.    Stamp one (1) full watermelon and five (5) leaf images in Shaded Spruce ink on Thick White CS. If desired, color over each image with Stampin’ Blends.  Hand-trim each image. Note that three of the leaf images have been trimmed to separate the small and large leaves.

7.    Decorate the front and inside of the card base with stamped watermelon and leaf images as shown. The full watermelon, the leaf and quarter watermelon slice at the top of the front card flap are mounted Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Make sure that the half-slice watermelon image on the inside of the card does not show on the front when the card is closed.   

8.    Randomly add two green In Color Pearls on the inside bottom right corner and one to the left of the leaf in the top right corner on the inside of the card base.
