My card today features the fabulous Veggie Patch stamp set and dies. Who can’t help but love some classic veggie puns!
I stamped out the three vegetables – the pumpkin, the aubergine (or eggplant for you International folks!) and the sweetcorn – with some MFT Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. I then coloured these in with my Copic markers, using at least four markers to give lots of dimension and detail.
I knew I wanted to make the aubergine a little geeky so I could could use the amaizingly punny sentiment, so I stamped out the glasses and drew on the eyes with a marker. I cut them all out with the coordinating dies.
From an A6 white card panel I used a stitched circle die (check out the new Heffy Doodle Stitched Circle Dies) to cut a window from the centre. The inner piece I coloured with some more Copic markers to give my veggies a backdrop to ground them.
I popped the white panel up onto a top-folding card base with some foam tape, using some liquid glue to adhere the coloured circle directly to the card base. I then adhered my veggies, using a white pen to give some additional highlights and some Glossy Accents on the glasses.
I wanted the sentiments to match the marker colours I used for the veggies, so I coloured in some strips of paper with the same markers. I then stamped out two of the punny sentiments from the Veggie Patch stamp set in some black ink, clear heat embossing them to give them some dimension and then cutting them out with the Heffy Doodle Strips of Ease dies.
A bright, happy congratulatory card to put a smile on any recipient’s face!
