So I chose the watermelon and the sentiment "one in a melon" for my images and Real Red as my one bold bright.
First I cut my circle out with my coluzzle, then ran through my cuddle bug to emboss #leaving about 1" from the fold so I can fold it without flattening my embossing#. The reason I did this is because I find if I fold first then run throught the machine unfolded, it weakens the fold. I simply lined up my clear stamps through my hole and made my melon. Then for the sentiment since it is one phrase, I used masking tape to cover the other words and stamped only what I wanted in the color I wanted. I added a ribbon and Voila.
Great challenge Jen thank you. Also thank you Susan, Angela, Carolina and Jen for your great samples. TFL
