DIY Patterned Stationary

Okay, so this isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel, but I really wanted a good reason to use my new Martha Stewart paper stencils. I started convincing myself of all of the ways patterned stationary could be used in the next few months (a lot like when I want a new dress that I don’t actually need), except non of them really applied to me at the moment so I decided to make this about you.

Let’s chat about how you could use this DIY patterned stationary: graduation, spring soirees, dinner parties, gift sets, Mother’s day, Father’s day… my birthday if you want to mail me something… and the list goes on.

Materials:

  • Heavy card stock or letterpress paper
  • Coordinating envelopes
  • Martha Stewart craft paints
  • Martha Stewart paper stencil pack

If you can punch out stencils, then you can make these. All you have to do is line up your pattern with the edges of the paper, mix and match a little paint, and voila!

    Electronic cards are the ultimate free birthday cards. The selections are endless and run the gambit from the tongue in cheek funny, to the preposterous and oblique. You may choose to add a variety of sounds to your graphic selections, as well as the opportunity to add as much or as little personalization as you choose. For those with a talent for words, this is the perfect vehicle for a birthday poem to send to the happy celebrant. Of course, an added feature is the fact that you not only save money because you are not purchasing cards themselves, but you also save because you do not have to pay for postage! In addition to the foregoing, if you are truly in a pinch for time, these cards can be sent before midnight and still arrive on time for someone’s birthday! Truly a procrastinator’s dreams come true.;

    The oldest greeting cards we have today date back to the 14th century, made somewhere in Europe. The culture of giving greeting cards developed in the 19th century when printing press came into the picture. Greeting cards, these days, are of various types. These types include standard greeting cards, photo greeting cards, personalized greeting cards, reusable greeting cards, electronic greeting cards etc. The pictures and messages in greeting cards come in various styles, which range from fine arts to profane. Although in today’s world, technology has made everything so fast and easy, but the charm and warmth of sending a card to someone is not lost.*

    I detest ecards – with a passion and there are few things I can say that for! I love snail mail and physical cards. Their so much more personal and you can keep them for keepsakes.
