A "Radiant" Notecard Set

Authentique Paper and Avery Elle are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of "Nautical" inspiration using Authentique Paper and Avery Elle products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Avery Elle blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

Hi everyone, it's Audrey, here today with a notecard set to share that features the beautiful Radiant collection and stamps from our product partner this week, Avery Elle.


I received Avery Elle's super cute Framed Fonts clear stamp set to play with. Such an awesome set for creating birthday cards, thank you cards, congratulations cards, and more, with four adorable mixed-font sentiments to choose from. I selected three of the sentiments, and made a matching set of bright and happy notecards, perfect for giving as a gift, or just tucking away for yourself.

I really do love the pretty subway art style of the sentiments, and wanted to let them really shine and be the star. After stamping the images onto white cardstock, I stamped the frame that comes with the set in contrasting brown ink, and fussy cut them out. Layering the frames with two different label shapes, die cut from Radiant patterned papers, calls lots of extra attention to the images, and is a great way to turn a simple sentiment into a dramatic focal point.


I kept the rest of the notecard design rather simple to not detract from the pretty framed fonts. Just a wide band of striped grosgrain ribbon across the center of the card, a bright blue flower, and happy orange buttons for an extra pop of color. I adhered some of the layers with pop dots for extra depth and dimension. Simple machine stitching adds a final bit of detail.
Enjoy!
