Heat Gun  http://amzn.to/2rN9p1f
Versamark Ink  http://amzn.to/2t6CUvr
Dots Embossing Folder  http://amzn.to/2trrJwH
Alphabet stamp set or stickers

Instructions:  
  1. Draw & cut watermelon shape on white paper.  Make sure the shape will fit on your card front.  
  2. Color watermelon using colored pencils in a variety of greens making stripes with lighter centers, See Photo Above. 
  3. Blend colors with blender pencil or other technique you like.
  4. Cut watermelon out. Cut a thin rectangle out of brown for stem and using a corner rounder, round one edge of stem.
  5. Place VersaMark all over the front of the watermelon.  Make sure it has a good coat all over it.  Sprinkle it with clear embossing powder.  Using your heat gun, carefully heat set the embossing powder. Watch the magic happen! Set aside.
  6. Place card front in embossing folder and run through your embossing machine.
  7. Use edge punch to punch the edge of the bottom of the card front or use decorative scissors or cut in scallop. It's Your Card!
  8. Using your 4x5 1/4 inch green paper, place that inside the card where your note will be.
  9. Cut a triangle out of the extra piece of white paper to be watermelon slice.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  Place the triangle behind the watermelon and round the top of the triangle so that it matches the roundess of the watermelon.  HOLD THE PIECES TOGETHER
  10. Flip the watermelon over, trace the watermelon slice where you want it to slide out from on the front.  Next to the tracing lines, please foam tape. This will keep the triangle from moving from side to side when inserted in the space.
  11. Color the triangle slice and rind.  Attach the stem. 
  12. Dry fit both pieces to card for placement. 
  13. Adhere watermelon on card using the foam tape previously applied to the back. 
  14. Add sentiment to strip of white paper using Versafine Black ink.  Adhere to the front of card with foam tape on the sides.
  15. Add Glossy Accents to the slice rind and allow to dry thoroughly. NOTE Glossy Accents takes at least an hour to dry.
If you have a letter stamp set, you can always change the sentiment to suit your needs!!!  One of my favorite watermelon sentiments is "You're One in a Melon"
