Recently I have been practising calligraphy, so this week I wanted to make something with a hand lettering theme. This is perfect for those of you who don't fancy learning calligraphy but want to use the style/aesthetic!

Start by embossing the black card stock - this is a quick and simple make!

Next, draw over the embossed script with the gold sharpie marker. Do this slowly and carefully so it stays neat and within the embossed design.

Add some gold dots on the design and trim the black card stock ready to mount.

Mount onto a white A5 card using the double-sided tape. Use the corner punch if you prefer the look.
