How Plant based cards started...
It has been a few years since setting up my illustrated vegan greeting cards brand and business called 'Plant based cards', and nearly a year since launching the Vegan Top Trumps card game.
Plant based cards was initially a personal illustration project. It started when my vegan sister asked if I would illustrate an avocado pun character for a christmas card. I decided to take her up on this illustration challenge and she loved the outcome!
This really got me thinking... 'I wonder if people want to buy these?' and 'What if I could sell these illustration designs online?'
I decided to create 5 more illustrated christmas card designs. Each illustrated card had a different plant based food character. I now have nearly 100 illustrated cards and vegan gifts available.

I really liked the idea of adding other vegan gifts and products to the plant based brand I had started. By doing lots of research and brainstorming I was able to design the idea of a totally unique Plant Based Top Trumps card game! I noticed that no one else had ever done this, so that was a great start!
After drawing and researching food nutrition for about a month; I had finally designed 54 illustrated plant based food characters along with their health benefits!
Plant based top trumps is available to buy online. I am overwhelmed how successful this vegan card game is. And it has helped me gain many 5 star testimonials on my Etsy page and website. It gives me enthusiasm for making future vegan card games for everyone to enjoy.
"Lovely quality cards with much thought having been given to the characters and game. Made a wonderful gift!"
It brings me great joy knowing that so many people and children of all ages are benefiting from the vegan top trumps card game.

I was able to get these printed from a print and design company called systematicprint.com, who are always ahead when it comes to sustainable printing.
