Thanks a Melon Card


Today I thought that I would play with my Just Because Cards Cartridge. I chose the melon card and cut it at 5 1/2 inches. So the base of my card ended up being 5 1/2 inches tall and 7 3/4 inches wide. I am going to have to figure out a better size to cut these cards from this cart at but I decided to just finish up the card but I decided not to use the saying that is on the cart with this card and to use one of Robyn's stamps ( Fruit & Veggie Puns by My Pink Stamper) I am definitely going to have to play with this cart more to get it figured out!

great card Karlee keep finding out what's on there

Victoria said...

Oh, I like this melon card. What size did it come out that was a problem?

Sandy Bayles said...

Karlee,
I have had size problems with this cart also. All items are suppose to be cut at the same size. But that does not work on some of them.
I am still working on that also. I cut a card yesterday and it came out a little smaller than the A2 size. This is so cute.

Super cute!!!! :)

Cute card. Karlee, this has challenged me to use a cart I have not used yet!

Thanks for sharing how you made this card, Karlee. I always get discouraged when I go through so much CS trying to figure out why some carts don't cut the size I want. Knowing that other crafters encounter the same thing makes me feel better:-)

I know what you mean about the sizing on this cartridge. I use it with DS so I can see how big it's going to be and adjust to what I really want. I adore the cartridge though so I it only takes a 2 minutes to open DS so I put up with it. Great looking card and perfect stamp for this one.

Angie said...

I have this cartridge and I never really make the cards as much as I will use pieces of them, the phrases or the cuts, not all of it together.....not sure if that's bad or good!

I love the images on this cart but I am also having some technical difficulties with it also, lol. I like the images for my layouts and the layering gets a little difficult. Oh well must keep trying. Cute card!!

How funny! I had a layout on my Gypsy that I had been working on for a while and decided to cut it today and make the card. It is the exact same melon I used so I was surprised to see your card tonight. :) Great job!

Such a cute card and love the colors. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hey Karlee - this might help :) I was told with the cards to print the envelope first using fit to page - watch the size it prints at and make that the dial size for the card. Hope this makes sense :)

Jennifer said...

Very cute card!!! :) Do you have to make your own envelope to fit it?

Thanks for sharing,

Jennifer
