Summer Fun Cards

It's definitely summertime in Oklahoma!  Over 30 days with temperatures over 100°, and it's not even August yet!  So, it seemed appropriate to make some summer themed cards this afternoon.

The ants were computer printed onto white card stock, trimmed, and I used SU border punches on the edges.
I made the watermelon halves using an 1.25" circle punch and an 1.5" scalloped circle punch, inked the edges and added some seeds with a gel pen.

 A little doodling with a Signo pen and adding a bow gave the cards just a little more dimension,
The idea was inspired by a card seen on Splitcoast Stampers.

Kat--it's a free clip art image I found on Google. I saved it and then opened it up and resized it in my card making software.

But, you can do the same thing in any photo editing program.

If you'll send me your email address--you can do it in a Facebook message so it won't be shown on here if you want--I'll email you the image so you don't have to slog through the ones that I did to find it!
