Late last year I vowed that I would post a freebie a week this year. That was a bit ambitious really given the amount of time it takes to put freebies together. Creating the cards themselves isn’t the problem, it’s the preview files, the pdf’s, the zips etc that takes time.. or maybe it just seems to because it’s tedious.
Anyway. This week I decided to try and create some 3×4 Project Life style cards by splattering watercolours on some grid cards and adding some stamps. I liked the finished product so much, that I decided to try and do something similar in Photoshop. I splattered some paint around on plain paper, scanned it, and turned it into photoshop brushes. I have to pause here and say how much I love the brushes. They turned out so well that my husband had trouble telling that the cards in the photo above are printed digitals, not hand done. After creating the brushes, I made my own grid pattern, some banners, then went silly with splatters, custom shapes, and text. Very silly. I made around 53 cards.
Due to the high number of cards and the large files sizes, I’ve loosely put them into categories for the PDF’s. You can either download the PDFs individually as either A4 or letter (the links are under each photo below) or you can scroll to the end and grab the zip files with all the PDFs and the individual JPG’s. As the PDF’s are quite large you may wish to save them rather than try opening them in your browser.
If you have any trouble with the files let me know. I’ve been researching whether or not I need to do something differently for Mac OS users, but can’t find anything conclusive (if you know, let me know!).
I’ve called these cards the messy set as the splatters are way over the top. They are mainly fillers, with a couple of journal cards.
This set is all filler cards with various sayings. Some cards have a few colour variations, others have only one. Not all sayings are pictured.
Journal cards. Three different headings in various colour schemes.
More journal cards. These ones only contain the style of card pictured in various colours. Each colour has a black and coloured variation.
Or download them all!
