I started with an 4.25" x 5.5" A2 base made from kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink. If you have never used this brand of cardstock, it is super thick and sturdy and awesome for card bases.
All cuts are from the
card. (page 55 of the handbook) I cut the red gingham shape at 4" as well as all layers of the watermelon. I cut the words at 3.75". All papers, except the base, are My Mind's Eye, and the edges were inked with Ranger's Distress Ink - Walnut Stain.
It was very simple, but I think it turned out pretty cute.
