Here is a "just because" card for my hubby. :)
I saw the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut. It's "Melon Time" and I've been seeing all the watermelon projects all over... I really didn't want to do another watermelon card.
At first, I wanted to make a "Honey Dew" list... then I came up with the sentiment "I appreciate everything my honey dew!" and eventually settled on "I love everything my honey dew!" So, to do something new, I wanted to cut the Honey Dew from Preserves. I cut it at 5 1/2".
Using the Floral font I printed the sentiment directly of the leaf of the honey dew.
I inked the whole card with some black and dark green ink using a finger dauber. I was trying to get the mottled look of the honey dew skin. I don't know how well I succeeded, but my honey loved his card... so in that way I did succeed. :)
I accented the card with some white gel pen stitches and flat back self-adhesive black pearls.
