Monochrome Springtime Notecard Set

Hey everyone! How are you all doing? Are you ready for some more Gel-à-Tins fun?!

I'm back today with a little CAS notecard set I created with the really fun Springtime set. The images in this set are so perfect for creating so many different looks! I've definitely got a ton of ideas for it! The little squares are perfect for making a bold design statement and I let that dictate the style of these projects:


Aren't these fantastic? I think monochrome makes such a sophisticated style statement and suits any one's tastes!


I started with some white cardstock and prepared that into little 3.5"x5" card bases. The squares in this set are just a little bigger than inchie size, which makes them great for creating a smaller card, or you can always use several on one card too if you want to go with more standard dimensions!


I inked up each image with VersaMark and black Versafine, then embossed with clear embossing powder so that they really gave a slick finish. I then stamped some all-occasion sentiments and a black line to accent. Finally I added a strip of black cardstock vertically for some added interest.


Really a very CAS design but these pack such a punch I think! And I've already got a ton of ideas for some slight changes for when I create something similar again!


The great thing about little cards like these is that they can also be a perfect gift for someone - and they take no time at all to whip up!!


They're also pretty much one layer too, so they're nice and flat for boxing up and posting!


Supplies Used:


Fillable Frames #1, Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink)
VersaMark and Versafine Onyx Black inks (Tsukineko)
Stamper's Select White cardstock, True Black cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Clear Filigree Embossing Powder (Stewart Superior)

I'd love to know which is your favourite! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!!
