Color Fade Stationery

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.

Alright, alright, alright! I admit I have a weakness for ombre whether it's on paper, paint, clothing (although I don't know if I'd wear a whole outfit of it like our artisan did). These cards would make up the perfect set of gift cards along with solid colored matching envelopes! I'll have to see how many sets of three colors I can come up with in my alcohol inks because I don't have gelato colors. Thanks for the idea!!!

I can't believe these are homemade. They look store-bought! How beautiful.

Am I the only one who remembers the big boxes of stationery? There were at least two sheets for every envelope. I loved those boxes! When I start writing, I have a difficult time knowing when to stop. This project is for a card, but I can see making sheets of paper to use as stationery paper. I still have pen Pals, and I still enjoy writing those, long letters and this could be a fun way to do so.
