Mock Block Print Notecards


I've always loved Indian block prints. So now that I am learning how to design digital prints, I thought I'd have a go. The result: a set of co-ordinated notecards. I had big fun designing the motifs and matching borders.

These notecards make an excellent craft project for a lazy summer day because all you have to do is print, cut, and fold the card in half (use a scoring board and a bone folder for a professional finish). Tip: to accentuate the fabric-like appearance, print your notecards on textured cardstock (like American Crafts or Bazzill Basics). Classy!

Print! Cut! (...fold)
Ah yes, I forgot to tell you: I did one card in a predominantly pink colourway - somebody always wants one:
Here are your free downloads. The files are .pdfs. The cutting is so easy that using a digital cutting machine is uncalled for.

(Well - not quite chartreuse. Sort of a mustard colour. But almost.)

Enjoy.
