The school my kids attend is having a basket auction fundraiser soon. I am donating a card set to the auction. I choose to do a set of punny vegetable cards. I choose this theme for a few reasons; a) they are fairly generic so the cards can be sent to anyone for almost any occasion, b) my kids school plants a garden every spring, and finally, c) I found a fun vegetable pun that made me laugh.
This set used turnips. I used the same design for each card but changed up the colors. I also put the turnips in different spots.
All 4 cards together
Size: Vertical A2 cards; There are two top fold cards and two side fold cards
Extra Details: I started by making the card bases. I had already made the radish cards with the variety of folds, so I did the same for this card set. I used many of the same Distress Inks that I used on the Radish cards to create the background for these cards.
I smooshed three colors of Distress Ink on to my acrylic block, making sure to cover most of the block. I sprayed water on to the block and then stamped the whole thing down onto my card base. I used a paper towel to sop up any large pools of water before letting the card bases dry. Once the card bases were dry, I flicked some more ink onto the card bases. I only used one color of ink when flicking the ink on each card base.
While the card bases were drying, I stamped the turnips with Distress Inks, Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Ink, and Memento Dew Drop Inks. Then, I fussy cut out all of the turnips and adhered them to the dry card bases. To keep the cards interesting, I changed up the placement.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in black ink.
