I love the variety of food-related Whittle dies along with the punny sentiments in Life is Sweet. There is a wide variety of dies available from ice cream to popsicles, donuts to pies and the tacos, chips and avocados that I used on my card! And the Life is Sweet set has sentiments for all of them.
We are a taco-loving family with a good guac on the side so I prepared this in advance for when I want to say "bravocado" to one of my sons! I used the Whittle Taco and Nacho and the Whittle Avocado along with the Word Balloons for the sentiment.
If you look at the picture of the Whittle Taco and Nacho you'll see that it's just the shells but I wanted to make my taco overflowing. My taco shell is cut with the bigger one; I cut two and used on behind all of the stuff in my taco. I used the smaller taco shell and cut it in orange and red to add the colors of cheese and tomatoes. Then I cut a nacho in green and trimmed the three little corners for my shreds of lettuce. Finally just to be sure my sons knew the card came from me , I cut the avocado pit in white for a dollop of sour cream. (Everything is better with sour cream!!)
Because it's intended for one of my 20+-year old sons, I had originally just had the three little elements and their word balloons - but I decided a "bravocado" card need some color! So I trimmed strips of taco-related colors plus an aqua just for fun - then cut the whole thing with a stitched square. I mounted it on white, then black. To mirror that, I mounted the word balloons on white. It's a bright and festive card with a bit of a cartoony-look to it. It will be perfect for them! And I hope I gave you some ideas for your next taco/avocado/nacho card!!
