Easy Brush Lettering Tricks (anyone can do!)

Hi friends! Today I have some tips to make your handwriting pretty enough for the front of the card!

Supplies:

Directions:

  1. Working directly on your card (or a separate panel as we did for the embossed card) lay a stip of masking tape wher you want your sentiment to be.
  2. Stamp your images overlapping the tape.
  3. While the tape is still on lay a strip of ⅛” score tape right next to each edge of the masking tape but don’t peel off the backing.
  4. At this point on the dark cardstock you want to remove the masking tape and score tape backing and sprinkle on gold embossing tinsel and heat set.
  5. Remove the masking tape and print, or write your sentiment as neat as you can using big letters with a fine tip pen. Then use a brush tip pen to go over the letterns pressing on the down strokes. Use a bright dye based marker on white cardstock and a metallic on dark cardstock.
  6. On the white card add accents wto the lettering with a Quickie glue pen. Remove the backing on the score tape and sprinkle with red glitter.
  7. If you worked on a separate panel mount it to a card base.

You can change up the stamps, inks and glitter colors to suit your style! Give it a try and til next time happy crafting!
