Fruits and Veggies ATCs

Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start! I’ve been spending some quality time in my studio, so no complaints here! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring Basis cardstock that’s on sale this month so be sure to get some! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a set of nine colorful and pun-y ATCs, both cards and coins! If you know me, you know that I absolutely love ATCs and I typically don’t trade them! It’s been a little while since I’ve made any, so I figured it’s time to add to my collection!

I cut the cards at 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and punched the coins with a 2-1/2″ circle punch, all from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock. I cut layers and strips in varying widths from CutCardStock Basis Aqua, Basis Dark Purple, Basis Gray, Basis Green, Basis Light Yellow, Basis Medium Blue, Basis Navy, Basis Orange (no longer stocked but Pop-Tone Tangy Orange would be a good alternative), Basis Red and Basis Teal cardstock. I cut additional layers and strips from bright patterned papers. I then stamped the images on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. Then came the fun of assembling each one, stamping the sentiments, and adding a few tiny iridescent gemstones. I will say that after using Hero Arts Unicorn ink for the second time now, I’m not a fan. I used Memento Luxe ink for the first time on two of these ATCs and I like it much better. All in all, I’m super happy with how these turned out! Here are close-ups of each card and coin:
