Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Citrus Happy Mail with Fuse Tool

Sunday, August 16, 2015

I have this "thing" about crafting tools. I LOVE them! So I was eager to try the FUSE tool and play around with it. This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "Citrus with a Twist." I took it literally and created a clear citrus postcard that's also a shaker.
The Fuse tool was easy to use and lots of fun, too!

All of the internal elements are creating a lemon/lime shake-up in my clear postcard. How cool is that!?! So the postal carrier doesn't hate me....I affixed the address label to the outside. (It hasn't been completely filled out for privacy reasons.)

  17. This is so fabulous and I totally dig the silhouette of the citrus! It looks great from far away or closer up. I love your attention to detail and how some of the seeds are open and others are all filled in. The variety gives it that much more visual oomph!
