I started with a 6x6 light pink polka dot pattern paper as the base, stamped the ants, and added little stitch marks with a black pen. Then I stamped the hearts on a darker pink pattern paper to resemble seeds, placed an adhesive round bubble cap over the top, and cut in half with very sharp scissors to get a clean cut. Repeat. Stamped two green round frames on white cardstock, punched out, and cut in half. Adhere both pieces together with glue dots. So they’d look like watermelons and adhere to left side of layout as shown in the picture.
Next I colored a clear adhesive button with an alcohol marker and set a side to dry. Die cut a frame from cardstock and adhere the picture. Wrap two colors of bakers twine around picture frame, tie in bow, thread green twine through the button (once dry), and tie in a knot. Adhere frame to base of layout. Stamp sentiment on cardstock, trim the end, and adhere to picture.
