Hand Lettered Cards


When I became intrigued by hand lettering, one of the things I hoped I'd be able to do was to incorporate it into my card making. So when I had a couple of cards to make this weekend, that's just what I did. 

I started by doodling the wreath for each card, then added the initial. It just so happened that both recipients have the same initial. 


I chose some coordinating papers , trimmed the focal piece, matted then stamped the sentiments for each with Staz On ink onto white cardstock scraps. Matted those w/ coordinating paper scraps. As I continue to practics and get better at lettering, I'll do the sentiments too but for now, stamps lol. 


To add some dimension, I dotted the berries on the doodled branches with clear dimensional drops ( Nuvo clear). 


Supplies Used: 
  • Decorative Scrapbook Papers: Crate Paper pack ( Michaels)
  • Lettering Paper: Strathmore Watercolor 
  • Staz On Black Ink
  • Sentiment Stamps : Michaels (Impulse buy a while ago)
  • Drawing Pen: Faber Castell (my personal fave)
  • Coloring Pens: Tombow Dual Tip (my personal fave)

These are pretty - I haven't done any stamping or embossing since (yikes) the '80s. I should look into all the new goodies out there!

I'd love if you'd share this with Awesome Life Friday tonight! http://rchreviews.blogspot.com/
