Hey, all. Cheesy

My partner in the whedonverse swap requested for some tall cards. I got a lot of inspiration from the tall card set that someone made for an earlier whedonverse swap and posted here on craftster.

Here's a pic that my partner posted on the swap gallery:

And here's a pic I took with the whole strawberry suit (I flipped the middle row so the back could be seen):


So, I couldn't find a picture of the front of the cards, so I just used the image I used for the back of the cards. Also, I don't think it's the exact image on the back of the cards, but it was good enough for me. (Found the image here)

I did a bunch of google image searches for the fruits for the suits and for the phoenix, unicorn, tortoise, and dragon. And a couple of hours working on gimp, I made the cards. I then sized them so that 4 would fit in a 5R (5"x7"), and had them all printed out at a local photo printing shop. Cut them all out, glued them together with a piece of cardboard in between (but afterwards, I realized that maybe even without the middle piece it would have been sturdy enough). The cutting out and sticking them together and trimming edges took the most time and were pretty hard on the hands. But they were so very pretty when I got done. I blacked the edges of the cards with a stamp pad. The tall cards I made using by printing a larger version of the fruits and gluing onto cardboard circles.
