I signed up for 4 swap groups this round, which was a lot of work while also finishing up coursework and taking final exams! This swap uses the Sale-a-Bration exclusive Thanks a Bunch set featuring carrots, which I came up with this design, hoping that it would be unique and a more modern take on cards going around for this catalog.
The most important tool I used in making this card is the Stamparatus, which helped me space out the carrots on the paper to give me 1) even margins, and 2) reproducibility! What I ended up doing was stamping the top row first for all of my cards, moving the plate down one notch for each carrot, then turning the paper 180°, repositioning the carrot, and stamping in the blank space, leaving one carrot spot blank to stamp it in Blackberry Bliss for our one-of-a-kind purple carrot.
I wanted to add some sparkle and ended up putting three rhinestones in descending sizes on the bottom left corner (which is inconveniently covered by my watermark), but I also played around with bedazzling the purple carrot with rhinestones and using Wink of Stella glitter brush.
