Stampin' Up! A Sara Thing, One In A Melon Alternate Card - III

I'm starting to feel somewhat better.  I had a very relaxing weekend and even made it out on the pontoon and fished for 2 hours.  Normally, I can stay out all day; but, I didn't want to over do it.  And, yes!  I out fished my Hubby - Again!!!

You couldn't have asked for better weather this weekend.  Sunny and in the high 80's.  Just gorgeous!

Today, I'll be sharing my third alternate card that I designed using elements from SU's A Sara Thing and One In A Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Let's take a look:

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

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

For my Second Card Front Panel, I trimmed out a Panel of the Fruit Card Base from the One In A Melon Paper Pumpkin Kit to measure 3-3/8" x 4-5/8".

I trimmed out a piece of the Watermelon Rind Gift Bag from the One In A Melon Gift Bag to measure 1/2" x 3-3/8" and adhered it to the Second Card Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I cut a length of the Melon Mambo Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the top of the Second Card Front Panel leaving the ends free for now.  I adhered this Panel to my Card with  Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using one of the Round Tags from the One In A Melon Kit, I stamped the Watermelon Rind in Emerald Envy Ink and the Sweet Watermelon in Melon Mambo Ink.

Using A Sara Thing Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set I stamped the YOU on the top of the Round Tag and the ARE and the SO underneath each other in Basic Black Archival Ink.

Using SU's Layering Circles Framelits Dies, I die cut the 3" Scalloped Circle from Emerald Envy Cards.  Using my 1/8" Handheld Punch, I punched a hole in the top of the Scalloped Circle lining it up with the hole in the Round Tag.

I put the ends of the Baker's Twine through the holes in the Scalloped Circle and the Round Tag and tied the ends in a Bow.  Using my Paper Piercer Tool, I picked up a small Glue Dot and adhered it underneath the Tags behind the Bow to make it more secure.

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