You may not love your handwriting, but a little personal touch can go a long way when it comes to card making. Here’s one great idea for Valentine’s Day.
Fonts are just awesome. I love different fonts and typography, and my favorite stamps are quite often sentiment stamps. I suppose part of the reason I love these stamps is my inability to write beautifully. I do not love my handwriting, and I’m in awe of beautiful lettering. Sometimes in a coffee shop I forget to pick something out because I get distracted by the colorful, blocky letters.
Card Maker magazine offered a challenge to this long held opinion of my penmanship in the recent feature “Write it with Style–Stand Tall Alphabet.” The article features a beautiful card where the largest element is the word “Easter” handwritten by the artist in beautiful, tall letters. I stared at it for a while and decided I’d give it a whirl. I opted to make a card featuring the word “Love” in honor of Valentine’s Day. As I looked at my imperfect lettering, I thought of how imperfect my love can be and figured, “Why shouldn’t I allow my offering of love reflect that?”
