I remember sitting in my dorm room and making my own cards. I would spend hours doing it! I wish I had known about Gelli Art then. They have created a process to make personalized cards that can be done in seconds or minutes. When I first received the kit I was a smidge confused. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was supposed to do with everything inside. But then I watched the video and it all came together.
Inside the Card Printing Kit, you’ll receive the following –
- 5×5” Gelli Arts® printing plate
- NEW Gelli Arts® Premium Acrylic Paint (3 colors in 1 oz bottles)
- 4” roller
- 5 – 5×5” blank cards
- 2 foam sheets for creating stamps
- 12 pieces of 5×5” parchment paper
- Bubble wrap
You’ll use these items to make your own cards. They’ll be unique, one of kind card that no one else has but everyone will love.
I feel the printing plate is the most important piece of the kit. You’ll use this with every card you want to make, along with the roller and acrylic paints.
Feel free to use other household items like combs, paint brushes, leaves or other items that could help create a unique texture.
Your first step is to take the gel plate and cover it with your acrylic paint. You’ll use the roller to help spread the paint evenly across the plate. Once your paint is spread out, you’ll use those household items to create unique textures or designs in the paint. Once you are happy with how the plate looks, take your blank card and lay it over the plate and press down. Carefully pull or lift the paper up and set aside to dry. As you get more comfortable with the gel plate you can layer the paints and make more complex designs.
The Gelli Arts Card Printing Kit is the perfect kit to gift or to buy for yourself so you can try it out. See if you like it, though I must admit it is somewhat addicting. Making your own cards and stationery is fun and adds a personal touch.
