You won't believe how easy it is to whip up a batch of these versatile note cards. Make a few to use as tags for gift packages or as notes tucked into lunch bags, or make a bunch to include as part of a set of personalized DIY stationery for a special someone.
How to make monogrammed note cards
Supplies you'll need:
- The Basic Grey Prism Collection
- White card stock
- A paper cutter or scissors
- Double-sided adhesive
- An acrylic block (for the stamp)
- Washi tape
- Ink pads in a variety of colors (I used Hero Arts Fresh Peach, Soft Pool, Wet Cement, Soft Pink, and Neon Chartreuse)
Mount the diamond frame stamp from the Prism clear stamp set to an acrylic block. For this project, we don't want to stamp the line details on the inside of the stamp, so tape those off using washi tape or another low tack tape.
After the details that we don't want to stamp are covered with tape, ink up the stamp.
Tip: Don't forget to remove the tape before you stamp. Trust me, you'll have a smeary mess on your hands if you forget!
Stamp onto white cards tock and allow the ink to dry completely. Clean and dry your stamp thoroughly (I like to use the Hero Arts Stamp Scrubber for this because it makes the process go much more quickly), and repeat Steps 1-3 until you're finished stamping.
After you're finished stamping, allow the ink to dry completely. Then, cut out the frames with scissors.
Pop out the Prism chipboard letters that you'd like to use for your note cards, peel off the adhesive backer paper, and adhere each letter to the center of a stamped frame.
Cover the back of the stamped frame with double-sided adhesive and adhere to a piece of pre-cut patterned paper. Then, cover the back of the patterned paper with double-sided adhesive and adhere to a pre-cut, folded note card.
Note: I cut a piece of card stock to 3”w x 6” h for the note cards and folded them in the center, lengthwise. I cut the patterned paper to 2 3/4” w x 2 3/4” h, a bit smaller than the front of the note card.
If monogram note cards don't float your boat, then you can make larger note cards, forgo the stamped frames, and use the chipboard letters to create short sentiments like “hello” or “thanks.” Lots of possibilities!
