Handmade Paper Meets Ink Jet Printer

I've often wondered if you could print on handmade paper using an inkjet printer. Well, now I know—yes, you can. It works! I used a carrier for my handmade paper. I taped the handmade paper to a sheet of cardstock with painter's tape.


I used features in Make-The-Cut software to position the greeting and picture, then print them on my handmade paper. This just happened to be my software of choice, but other graphic or word processing programs would accomplish the same thing. [The graphic is from The Graphics Fairy.]


A piece of ribbon and a card jacket complete my Mother's Day card. [The card jacket was cut on my electronic cutting machine use a file from Birds Cards.]


I'm thrilled that I can use my inkjet printer to print directly on my handmade papers.
