DIY Patterned Stationery - Maritza Lisa

I always love a good pattern… and this one makes me smile. Have you seen this week’s free shape from Silhouette? Go ahead… take a moment to hop over there and download it, I’ll be right here. Now, that you have it, I want to share how I made this cute patterned stationery set. It all started with a white pen. I tried the sketch pen, but the ink was too light for the textured surface of my cardstock. Sooooo, out came my pen holder with my trusty white sakura gel pen, et voila! A project was born! Want to DIY patterned stationery with me?

The What

The How

Step 1: I opened up the 2 shapes in Studio and resized them

Step 2: I created a small flat card shape (rounded rectangle) using the middle of the envelope as a guide. I then created the an internal offset to crop the pattern

Step 3: Next, I made a faux liner to crop the pattern so that there is a border. To do this, I created an internal offset of the envelope, then used the rectangle tool to crop it (tip: you can duplicate this and use it later for envelope liners)

Tips: Before sending to cut, select your patterns, then use the penholder and pen to cut first (like the sketch pen) , then cut the cardstock with the blade

Once cut, I folded and glued with a brand new set of notecards and matching envelopes!

      Thanks, Alyssa! So far, I’ve been able to use my white gel pen with the pen holder. I believe you can use a ball point pen too. You can also use the sketch pens (without the holder). Have fun with your Silhouette!
