Less is More 26

Week 26 is a lucky dip week at Less is More, and the challenge is to make a CAS card with fruit on it. Lucky for me I needed a few summery thank you cards!

I used PTI's fruit fusion watermelon. This sweet little set is made up of a curved rind stamp, two patterened stamps for the inner part of the watermelon, and three combinations of sentiments. I made a mask using a post-it note and masked and stamped a row of watermelon slices across each card.




Supplies:
Paper: PTI
Stamps: PTI Fruit Fusion
Ink: Memento Spanish Moss, Rosebud
