Hello Note Cards Floral Series No.2

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hello All,

I’m back with another gorgeous set of notecards. This time in a brighter more vibrant floral pattern. This card also features an elegant vellum design that seamlessly blends into the white cardstock to make it seem like one printed piece. I’ve also added the gold cord to give a distinguished separation between the pattern and the base of the card. These cards measure 4.25″ x 5.5″ and have a side fold – which makes them perfect for mailing! I honestly can’t decide which set of notecards are my favorite. I have more to come in the next coming days. Hope you stop by to take a look!

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.
