I have talked about my love of all things watermelon for summer before (well, except the taste).  I was so excited when IO came out with a new watermelon die.  It even includes the seeds! Now I don't have to create my own seed stamps to use.

To make the card, I cut out all the pieces and assembled the watermelons.  The set comes with a die to make it look like a piece is bitten out of the watermelon slice.  I chose to use it on only one of the tree watermelons.  To finish the card, I added my sentiment with black ink.

Impression Obsession Items Used:
Melon Slice Die DIE981-S
sentiment from Good Old Summertime clear set CL764

What?! You don't like the taste???!!! You are missing out - ha! This card is fresh and sweet and I think your choice to have a bite out of only one is perfect for the balance. The summer potential for this die is huge. Thanks for sharing!
