Annette Green on Instagram: "Let’s make a batch of cards for Father’s Day with some fun Gelli Arts®️gel printed backgrounds! I used my Perfect Borders Set from Gelli Arts®️ along with some die cuts from plain cardstock to create these. This set really comes in handy when creating cards, as the Mini Placement Tool inside helps to align the paper for perfect .5” borders. (I eventually cut mine down to fit 4” x 6” cards this time). Remember, if a print doesn’t come out exactly as planned, you can always use it for sentiments and accent pieces. Show us YOUR card creations by tagging me @annettemgreen and @gelliarts in your prints. Can’t wait to see what you create!"

Create Mother's Day Cards With The Gelli® Plate
Create a simple yet effective monoprinted Mother's Day card with the Gelli Arts® Perfect Borders set and Archival ink pads. Gelli Arts® artist Giovanna Zara says this technique also works well with real or faux flowers, using the flower ghost print instead of a stamped flower. Artist Tip: you can use acrylic paint with rubber stamp, if you make sure you don't let any paint dry on the stamp. So clean the rubber stamp right away. #gelliarts #gelplate #gelprintingkit #printingplate #monoprinting
