A shabby chic living room, veranda or party must have vintage style fans during the summertime! Here is one I have designed for that purpose. Using an absolutely stunning French heart postcard as background, I have created an easy to cut and assemble fan. My French L’Amour fan also builds on the inspiration of the last few posts with fans: A Gift of Love fan and Customizable Cherub fan, but the cutting process is simplified by the easy shapes.
Individual fan leaves as png files with transparent background, can be found HERE, should you wish to add these to your digital creations.
While working on my prototypes, I have built up quite a number of fans, in various sizes and designs, to arrive at the ultimate style for this post. That got me thinking, I would like to actually gift some of these fans to friends and loved ones. So I used the french heart postcard to design an envelope too, that will fit the fan inside:
And a sheet of writing paper, in case I did not want to write my message on the back of the fan:
I really love the envelope, particularly when printed on vellum! I’m sure printing on parchment will look equally good. If you don’t have access to such fancy paper, it still looks great on plain 80g paper 🙂 So I printed a few extras for my stationery drawer, and realized a smaller card would be a great addition, for just a quick note or greeting, thus I have made a C’est La Vie card as well:
So there you have it, a complete line of free printable stationery, complimenting my French L’Amour Fan 🙂 Click on the images of the stationery printables, to open individual files and download them there. These could be used for your everyday correspondence, or for invitations or thank you notes. Include a fan in the French L’Amour snail-mail and your recipient will be thrilled to recieve your letter 🙂
These files are free for your personal use and enjoyment.
