Punny Fruit Mini Cards with Pretty Pink Posh

Saturday, June 17, 2023

I just love the new fruit themed products from the recent Pretty Pink Posh release and when I saw the Mini Scallop Card Dies, an idea popped into my head to make little cards that I think would be so cute as a gift.  

To prepare for my video, I stamped and colored images from the Citrus Stamp Set, Fresh Berries Stamp Set and Watermelon Stamp Set. They have been stamped in alcohol marker friendly black ink and colored in with Ohuhu Art Honolulu Markers. I have a coloring guide if you would like to see what I used to color in each of the fruits and different leaf combinations! I also used their Coordinating Dies (Citrus, Fresh Berries, Watermelon) to cut out the images and added highlights with a white gel pen.

Using the colors I used for my fruit as inspiration, I picked colored cardstock and cut the Mini Scallop Card Dies base in the three colors for each card. There is a stitched rectangle die in this set as well so I cut white cardstock for the inside of my cards for a sentiment. I will also use this stitched rectangle to cut the background for the front of the card, but that will come later.

In my video I begin with creating my stenciled backgrounds to coordinate with the stamped images. I started with Layered Citrus Stencils with (A) Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide, (B) Mustard Seed Distress Oxide, and (C) Shooting Star Lunar Paste. The next background was created with Layered Watermelon Stencils with (A) Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide, (B) Twisted Citron Distress Oxide, Lucky Clover Distress Oxide, and (C) Black Tie Stencil Butter. Finally, the last background was Layered Strawberries Stencils with (A) Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide, Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide, (B) Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide, (D) Lucky Clover Distress Oxide, (C) Chocolate Stencil Butter, and Shooting Star Lunar Paste.

When the backgrounds were dry, I brought back the stitched square from the Mini Scallop Card Dies and die cut as many backgrounds I could fit so I can save these for future projects! After assembling the Mini Scallop Cards together, I added in some extra shine with new Shimmer Mixes in Lemon, Lime, and Strawberry. I hope these mini cards bring you inspiration today!
