Creative Calligraphy

calligraphy

The idea for this card came about after seeing some of the stamps and artwork on this site. Since I didn’t have a “hello” stamp that looked like calligraphy, I decided I would draw my own. My calligraphy marker went missing during my last desk reorganization (I can never find things when I clean up–somehow it seemed like a good place to put it at the time!) but then I remembered coming across “fake calligraphy” when I was working on another project.

I practiced a few times on a piece of scrap paper until I had a good feel for it. I used a fine tip black marker to draw the word “hello”, then went over it with the clear Wink of Stella pen. I matted the white card stock on Basic Black card stock, layered with Silver Glimmer Paper.

The card base is Pool Party card stock. I folded it at 5 1/4″, then used the Scalloped Edge Punch along the bottom. I stamped the flower image from Creative Elements in black ink.

To finish the card, I tied some 5/8″ Satin Black Ribbon around the card front.
