Watermelon Thank You


A sweet little girl in my class brought me a different kind of fruit every day last week for Teacher Appreciation Week!  I loved it! On Friday she brought me a whole watermelon, so I just had to include a "slice" on her thank you card.


For my background, I embossed hexagons using my Papertrey Ink Hexagon Cover Plate.  These cover plates are really fun because you can use them to die cut or emboss.  Since I chose to emboss it this time, I just stamped on some of the hexagon designs from the coordinating Happy Hexagons stamp set. 


This cute slice of watermelon was cut at 5" with the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge.  See that strip of green chevrons running behind it?  I cut that from a piece of patterned paper in Echo Park's A Perfect Summer 6 x 6 paper pad.  You can pick up that cute pack at Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.


For my sentiment, I die cut banners with My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Label Dies and stamped sentiments from MCT's So Grateful for You stamp set.  Perfect for the sweet little girl who will receive this!
