Watermelon Happy Birthday {shape card}

Happy Thursday all my crafty friends!!! Well, I wanted to share a real simple shape card with all of you today.. I am so glad that summer is in full swing and one of my favorite summer treats is watermelon.. So, when I saw this adorable watermelon cut on the "Backyard Fun" svg set from Lettering Delights I was inspired to make a card with it .. So, I used SCAL to weld my watermelon shadows together to make the base of my card, and then used my new Silhouette SD machine(Yes, I am so excited to be a Silhouette owner now.. SVG's here I come, LOL!) to cut it all out.. Finally, I add a fabulous Joy’s Life Stamp for my sentiment.. I just love how cute this card turned out :0)


Here's what I used to create my card:

*SCAL
*"Backyard Fun" svg set ( Lettering Delights )
*"Father and Son Stamps" set ( Joy’s Life product page )
*Paper (DCWV & the Paper Studio)
*Ink
*Twine
*A Button
*Stickles
