Before the advent of cell phones and texting we'd send Love Notes to individuals that we liked to see if they wanted to be a girlfriend/boyfriend. If you were interested you'd check yes and you were "dating." I thought why not develop a Valentine Love Note which had that sweet nostalgic vintage feel to it. I wanted to develop just the right combination of gel printing and stenciling in this project combined with vintage papers to print on. I think I achieved that.
This project is a combination of an E-Pattern/PDF/Video pattern; with the link to the accompanying video which shows all of the techniques used to print these cards as well as a number of bonus features. The video includes almost 2 hours of video instruction. I guide you through the steps to gel print these gorgeous unique cards using basic gel printing techniques, using a variety of stencils commercially made and hand cut. Learn how to print the cards using various Deco Art paint colors as well as gorgeous envelopes to mail your cards in. The PDF includes the templates for the stencils you may hand cut as well as the template for the envelope we will print the papers for and pattern instruction.
I printed these Valentines on vintage newsprint from the 1920's and the 1940's. I have developed a paper kit for your convenience which includes 5 sheets of vintage newsprint cut to size, 2 pieces of vintage book paper, some music paper, 4 sheets of deli paper, and a piece of Punchinello. This kit will get you started gel printing these beautiful Valentine Cards. Find the kit on my website under the Category Kits.
You will have lifetime access to the video, for as long as I maintain my video site. I'm not planning to discontinue this at any time soon so don't worry that you will lose access.
Come join me on this fun gel printing journey.
