A Quick DIY Rooting for You Card
Everyone can use a little encouragement now and again, right? Give someone a boost with this cute multimedia inspirational card with multiple options for construction. This card can be assembled in under 30 minutes if fully using cut-outs and in much less time if using the Pazzles Pen Tool to draw the sentiment, even less if making as a print and cut card for the sentiment portion, or just printing the whole image and cutting just the card edges.
Simple Design and Supplies
This card utilizes just two pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch cardstock, a few scrap pieces, toothpicks, and a repurposed Pazzles Mat Cover. This card design can be simply printed out on one sheet of cardstock and the card edges cut out, or the sentiment and jar outline can be printed and the rest cut and pieced, or the sentiment and jar outline can be drawn and the rest cut and pieced, or the jar outline can be drawn or printed but the sentiment cut and pieced. Yay options! The Toothpicks can be cut from paper or vinyl or they can be actual toothpicks (even the flat type would work).
Resize to Big or Small!
This card can be resized just about any printable size if printing and cutting. It is recommended that if cutting the onion from cardstock the image not be made smaller as the onion roots may not cut out as nicely, though if the onion were cut from vinyl it could probably be made a little bit smaller. The card base could be made a bit smaller with the onion and jar remaining original size though, and maybe the sentiment rearranged onto two lines to fit a smaller card base; I imagine that making the card larger would work well but would require an oversized envelope! Two options for the sentiment are provided in the file: the single line font in black which can be drawn with the Pen Tool and an ultra-fine sharpie or a Pilot G-2 07 pt pen, and the outline of the sentiment in green, which would work best for printing or for cutting out of cardstock or vinyl and piecing onto the card front.
