- Cards (superthick paper works best)
- Binder clip
- Sponge brush
- Craft paint in the color of your choice
- Start by stacking the cards together. Place blank cards on the top and bottom of the deck, as you’ll inevitably get paint on them.
- Make sure the paper edges are aligned and clamp the stack into place with a binder clip.
- Evenly coat the edges with craft paint using a sponge brush.
- Let the paint dry completely, then unclip and admire your handiwork.
Tip: Feeling ambitious? Try this technique on your own designs. Or, for an easier solution, use it to give ordered prints a punch of personality. Either way, the fun, delicate framing is a fitting finishing touch for invitations you’ll treasure—and guests will remember.
