Watermelon T slide card

I'm having so much fun with the T-slide!  For this one, I had a cute stamp by Rubbernecker and I thought it would be fun to make some punched watermelon slices to go with it.













For the base of the card, follow the T-Slide Tutorial.  For the watermelon slices, you will need the Large Oval and the Wide Oval Stampin' Up! Punches.  For the bite marks on the watermelon, you will need the Punch Pack flower punch.

Punch the Large Oval in Garden Green as shown.   Line up the Wide Oval over the top of punched large oval and punch the watermelon rind as shown.  Punch the wide oval out of real red cardstock.  Sponge the bottom half with craft white ink .  Glue the rind onto the red oval.  Cut the red straight across between the rind ends.  Draw the seeds onto the watermelon with a black zig.  Punch bite marks onto the watermelon with the flower punch from the punch pack set.

Lili of the Valley retailers - I'm sure if there are any LOTV retailers in the US. However, the stamps work out at around $5 and the postage is just over $7. So not bad really. They do post internationally so if you wanted some you could buy - or enter the candies on the LOTV site and the inspiration site. Good Luck. I'm not connected with LOTV, just thought I'd help you out. xx
