You are a Gem / Free Printable Stationary

I love stationary that serves many purposes. As you may or may not know I did an internship with Hallmark Cards many years ago. Ah, it all makes so much sense now doesn’t it?

Anyway, as I was there, I learned about the importance of making messages universal. I tried to apply this lesson as I made myself some stationary the other week. I came up with these:

untitled album 2 - 7
untitled album 2 - 1

I think they say, “Thank You”, “Happy Birthday” “I love you” and just a simple, “Hi!” I’m trying to use more of my craft stash these days (instead of buying new things.) And I had some gorgeous letterpress weight French Paper already cut to a post card size. So I used my Gocco (like a mini silkscreen thing) with some gold metallic ink and got to work.

untitled album 2 - 6

I was quite please with the result, so I’ve decided to share it with you! The first way is a free download.

You can download my “You are a Gem” stationary here! 

I have two versions, one is a black outline, I used this to make my silkscreen. And the other is a full color version that I did. It looks like this:


Like all of my downloads feel free to gift them, share them, tuck them in with you on a cold night. But please do not make products to sell with them! That would just be rude.
