You're one in a melon...

I really love iris folding, and I love using my Cricut to cut out the apertures to fill in. This month, I designed 3 cute cards (if I must say so myself!) for my "I Heart Iris Folding" class at my LSS. So there I was, thinking I was so clever for coming up with the cute little melon sentiment, and one of the ladies in the class tells me she has a stamp at home that says the same thing. Thanks for bursting my bubble, Chris! Anyway, the patterned paper is Scenic Route, and the cardstock is Bazzill. The scalloped border was done using the Fiskars Threading Water punch. Buttons are from Lasting Impressions. The sentiment is hand-written. The watermelon is from the Doodlecharms cartridge.
The second card we made is using this cute sunflower from the Walk In My Garden cartridge. Patterned paper is Reminisce, and the cardstock is Bazzill. Sentiment is stamped using Provo Craft clear alphabet stamps and black Staz-On.
The third, but my favorite, card I designed is this yummy cupcake. I used the Doodlecharms cartridge for the cupcake, but had to cut the candle off and trace just the cupcake and cut it by hand. Pink gingham paper is Creative Imaginations. Brown cardstock is Lasting Impressions, and was run through a paper crimper. White cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. Stamp is Studio G. Thanks for looking!

I love your cards! I have been wanting to scraplift the snail card. I don't know how to iris fold, but want to learn. Do you have patterns? If so would you be willing to share? email is jobcorpsjen@gmail.com.
