Hello Floral Gold Foil Note Cards

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

Welcome back! This is the last of the note card series and I’m so pleased that you have enjoyed keeping up with each days post! It’s truly become difficult for me to pick and choose which set is my favorite. There are so many different elements on each card that I really do love.

These cards are a set of 4.25″ x 5.5″ standard size note cards. They are on a kraft 80lb card stock and have a thickness which makes them perfect for mailing and gifting – they are light weight! I love how the pattern switches up a traditional floral color scheme. Notice how the flower is more monotone than the background? I love that! It’s so unexpected in a design.

I separated the pattern with a kraft and gold foil stripe and gave each note card a simple ‘hello’ greeting.

Here’s a closer look.

Thanks so much for visiting and I’ll see you again real soon with an all new card series!

Doily Banner Notecards

Hi all,

It’s no secret that in the craft world everyday items become the foundation to create something new. Today, I’m taking fancy lace like papers we use to dress our desserts to create a set of notecards. Now, I didn’t actually use the paper version for a doily, but rather a set of images from a stamp set. A while back I purchased a couple of gorgeous stamp sets from My Minds Eye that included a couple of doily images that I thought would make the perfect foundation for a set of notecards. When I purchased these sets, I immediately knew how I wanted to purpose those specific stamps.

I used my favorite blank onyx ink and stamped the doily images as the foundation for the cards. Next, I layered on dimensional die-cuts of another set of doilies. Yes, doilys on top of doilys. Too busy? Absolutely not. By keeping the base black and neutral, the die-cuts are grounded to something – otherwise they’d just look like they are ‘floating’ in the middle of the page.

Next, I used a woodgrain banner stamp and grabbed a few of my favorite spring ink colors from Hero Arts. The key was to not add too much color. Keep it simple.

To finish off the cards I added some details (stripes, borders, and a few extra woodgrain lines) using a black gel pen.

I love that these cards are so simple but have multiple layered images to create a beautiful visual impact.

Joy to the World

Hi All,

I got another Christmas card to share with you today! For this card I wanted to try out a new shape and design. I designed the entire card using my silhouette cutting machine and some good quality cardstock.

By the way, I have a sentiment on the inside (I will post a picture over on etsy). It reads “Merry Everything”. LOL It covers all your holiday wishes for family and friends.
