How many Sale-a-Bration items can you fit onto one card? Well, in this case it’s 5! I was inspired to create this card by a swap card that I received from Darla Watson. I used many of the same elements from her card detailed below, but added a little bit of my own style, as well!

I started by stamping a Sale-a-Bration Heartfelt Hellos sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Sale-a-Bration Sunny Days Designer Series Paper. I adhered that to a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ piece of Basic White cardstock, then mounted it onto a Sweet Sorbet card base.

Next, I tied some Sale-a-Bration Pool Party Crinkle Ribbon around the card front into a double-knot faux-bow.

Next, I stamped the two-step Sale-a-Bration Watercolor Melon image onto a Basic White Everyday Details Dies circle die-cut. The inside of the watermelon is stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink and the rind is stamped in Shaded Spruce. I stamped the seeds over the top in Memento Black ink. I repeated the stamping of the full watermelon slice on another piece of Basic White cardstock, then cut it out with my super-sharp Paper Snips.

I popped up that circle die with Dimensionals, then added the second watermelon with Dimensionals, too.

It’s finished with a few Sale-a-Bration Opaque Faceted Gems in Pool Party color. So sweet & simple!

Darla Watson created this adorable swap card that I used as inspiration for my card above. I loved that she packed 5 different Sale-a-Bration items into one delightful card!

Darla used a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of the Sale-a-Bration Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper for her background, mounted onto a Thick Basic White card base.

Darla’s Watercolor Melon slices are stamped with Sweet Sorbet and Lemon Lime Twist inks, also stamped on and popped up on an Everyday Details die-cut. She added just a strip of the Pool Party Crinkled Ribbon folded underneath the circle for an accent.

I love that Darla embossed the Heartfelt Hellos sentiment in white onto Basic Black cardstock for a pop of contrasting black that packs a punch! She stamped it in VersaMark ink, sprinkled on the white embossing powder and heated with the Heat Tool until glossy and smooth. She fussy-cut around the word with Paper Snips and popped it up with Dimensionals. A few Pool Party Opaque Faceted Gems and this card is delicious!
