Stampin' Up! One In A Melon Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card - I

I'm still struggling along with getting my strength back after being sick; but, I'm doing somewhat better.

I had 3 Alternate cards made up before I got sick that I will be sharing with you over the next few days.  For this Card, I used elements from SU's One In A Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Let's take a look:


My Card Base is Melon Mambo Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2" for a top folding Card.

Using SU's Layering Circles Framelits Dies, I die cut the 3" Scalloped Oval from Crushed Curry Cardstock and adhered it to the top left corner of my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

My First Front Panel is Emerald Envy Cardstock cut at 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

For my Second Front Panel, I trimmed out a piece of one of the Card Bases in the One in a Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit to measure 3-3/8" x 4" and adhered it to the First Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


I adhered 3 of the Leaf Branches to my Card as shown in the picture above.

Using SU's One In A Melon Stamp Set, I stamped the Watermelon Rind and my Sentiment in Emerald Envy Ink and the Watermelon in Mambo Melon Ink onto one of the Round Tags in the Kit.
 
 
I  fussy cut out some of the fruit from the leftover Card Base piece and adhered them to the top of my Tag with small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals and Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered the Tag by staggering it over the Crushed Curry Scalloped Circle on the left top of my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.


Using the Melon Mambo Twine from the Kit, I tied a Double Bow and adhered it to my Tag as shown in the picture above.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Stampin' Up! One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternate 3D Project, 3 x 3 Cards & Holder - 6

Thank you to everyone who sent cards, left comments and for all the thoughts and prayers!  You are all so much appreciated!!!

I'm still not quite up to par yet.  The severe infection, surgery, hospital stay and recovering has left me exhausted.  I'm having a real rough time getting my energy back and getting back into my normal routine.  So please bear with me as I continue to recover.  I may just do a couple blog posts a week until I regain my strength and then, hopefully, my goal is to get back to blogging 5 days a week.

We had some nasty storms move through just South of us last night and it has sure cooled off here.  The thermometer has not even hit 70 degrees yet at noon.  Brrrr......  It is mostly sunny out though so maybe it will warm up some more yet.

My share for today is another of Stampin' Up's One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate 3D projects that I designed.

Let's take a look:



I LOVE to make 3D Projects and the One in a Melon June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit is perfect for making all kinds of Cards and Projects.

Here is a recap of the 3" x 3" cards that I designed....





And the Envelopes...

 
And, finally eh!, the 3" x 3" Card Holder Box...


 My 3" x 3" Card Holder is basically made the same as the Nugget Holder that I made on June 28 only larger.

I trimmed out a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to measure 3-3/4" x 5-3/4".  I scored it with the Short Side of the Cardstock at the top of my trimmer at 1-1/4" in from both sides.  I scored the Long Side at 1-1/4" in from both sides.  I cut up the side flaps to the score lines, adhered my Tear & Tape Adhesive to the flaps and folded the box up.


I die cut 2 pieces of the Watermelon Rind Treat Bag using SU's Layering Ovals using the 2-5/8" x 3-9/16" Oval.

I die cut 2 pieces of the Watermelon Tissue Paper using the 1-13/16" x 2-3/4" Oval.

I scored both Watermelon Rind Cardstock Ovals at 1/8" on the bottom and adhered them to the front and back of the box by tucking the 1/8" underneath the box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered the Watermelon Tissue Paper Ovals to the Center of each Watermelon Rind Oval.



I trimmed out a piece of a Lemon Lime Cardstock at 1/2" x 11" for the Handle and adhered it to the inside of each end of the Box.


Plenty of room for the 4 Cards and Envelopes.  What a fun and cute Summer gift for anyone and a picnic favorite!



The last thing to do is to tie a piece of SU's Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon into a pretty Bow and adhere it to the front of the Box.  The Ombre Ribbons are just my FAVE!!!

I hope you enjoyed my project today!  Hopefully, I can make it back tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Recovering!

Well, I had a great 3 day vacation with my Niece, Amy, my Great Niece, Bree, and my Great Nephew, Joey.  We had so much fun and it was so nice to really catch up on everything!

Although, on Friday, I had a tooth pulled and then ended up in the Emergency Room the following Monday with severe infection.  I went into the ER at 10AM and was in surgery by 1PM and spent the next 4 days in the hospital on intravenous antibiotics.  What a nightmare!

I am now home and plan on taking the rest of this week off from my Stampin' Up adventure to recover and hope beyond hope that I can start crafting and blogging again on Monday when I'm feeling better.

Thanks for your patience!

Lynn
