DIY Tiffany Blue Ombre Stationary

27 Feb

So I finally figured out that my paper cutter has this amazing feature, where it measures paper right as you cut.

That Martha Stewart, she thinks of everything.

And don’t judge, I would have figured this out sooner if I had actually read the directions…

Anyways, this is a vast improvement over measuring everything with a ruler.

So slicing and dicing custom cards is now pretty quick. Which is good when you’re getting ready for girls night out breakfast at tiffany’s birthday dinner and still haven’t started the cards…

But these went quick. I started off with 4 different shades of Tiffany blue for an ombre effect, in 12 x 12 paper.

Trim these down to fit in A6 envelopes.

Then a quick run through the printer to customize.

And done.

(For reals, I need to learn how to do letterpress to uplevel the wow here.)

I even got these sweet transparent envelopes to make sending the cards super fun.

But seriously? This whole “distance to the blade” feature is changing my life.

It’s the little things these days, really.

      I may have broke from my usual mold…no liners.

      Shocking, right?

    Hi! Where did you find your card stock? Sometimes the swatch featured on the website is either lighter or darker when seen in person.

      I bought this at Michaels – just the regular craft store!
