Color Fade Stationery


(1 Votes)


This Color Fade Stationery is as versatile as it is beautiful. With a simple sponging technique and a steady hand you can create a dark to light fade effect for your next set of DIY greeting cards. Use warm colors like red and orange to imitate a sunset on your stationery. Stick to a cool palette with blues and purples and your handmade cards will look as though they belong by the ocean. In fact, the semicircles on the front of these cards look a little bit like fish scales. Use these cards for invitations, thank you notes, birthday greetings, and more.
