Fruit and Vegetable CAS Card Set

Fresh foods are absolutely the best! So many colors, and they make for great cards. This Fruit and Vegetable CAS Card Set is easy to make, and pretty to look at!

Fruit and Vegetable CAS Card Set

Today starts our May challenge for the Joy of Sets! Below is our new tic-tac-toe grid for you to choose a Row, Column, or Diagonal for your next project. I hope you join in with us and share a project — And bonus, we are also joining up with the girls over at Double Trouble again!  That means if you follow our grid and meet their criteria you can add your project in both challenges.

For today’s card, I chose the top row, Birthday, CAS, Green. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, and CAS cards (Clean and Simple) have always been difficult for me to design. Incidentally, CAS cards are the easiest to actually make!

And this set of cards is no different!

With just a few supplies and no fancy techniques, I hope you give this set of fruit and vegetable cards a try!

See below for how to make this Garden Set of cards!

How to make a Fruit and Vegetable CAS Card Set!

Fruit and Vegetable CAS Card Set

Cut your Papers:

  • Whisper White: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″. And 5″ x 3 3/4″.
  • Old Olive (or whichever color you think is best for your fruit or vegetable): 5 1/4″ x 4″.


  • Stamp your food with ink that coordinates with your paper — In this case, Old Olive.
  • Fussy Cut out with scissors or your favorite craft knife.
  • With that same ink, stamp your sentiment in the center of the smaller white piece.

Adhere it all together:

  • Using your favorite adhesive, adhere the Old Olive to your White card base.
  • Then, adhere the smaller white piece with sentiment.
  • Lastly, use dimensionals to attach your avocado to your card.

Supplies for Fruit and Vegetable CAS Cards:

These two stamp sets are definitely underrated in my opinion, and will sadly be retired at the beginning of June. Wanna see what else is retiring (with lots on sale, too)? Click here to see them all!

    I am so bad at CAS cards, so I have to admire how you make them look so good! Love how you used the same design yet each card is absolutely unique. Great Job, Laura.

      Thank you so much!! I am not usually one to make CAS cards either, but I’m so happy how these turned out.

    Love your set of cards, in particular, living in Arizona the avocado is something that is most always in my fridge, and to think years ago when I lived back EastI didn’t know what to do with them until we moved to Arizona. Don’t forget we are partnering with Joy of Sets TTT for the next couple weeks and would love you to join us at Double Trouble (link is on their challenge post). You have met our Thing 1 requirement “Birthday BlowOut” and you are allowed to backlink your May 2nd card since we did not start our challenge until the 4th. Love to see you there to check us out, and hopefully come back for future fun challenges with Thing 1,2 and 3.

      I wish we could grow avocados here in PA! But when I was down in AZ, I was AMAZED at how so many people had lemons and grapefruits growing in their backyards 🥰✨Thanks too for the reminder! I always like your challenges.

    Lovely cards, Laura! I, too, live in the Arizona desert so no longer enjoy the fresh food from a garden or orchard. We do import some delicious fruits and vegetables from California, though. Be sure to include the required link back to the Double Trouble Challenge #56. (I don’t see one so forgive me if it’s there.) Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #56.
