Lettering – pigment liner greeting cards
Everyone loves receiving a home-made card. No matter whether it's a birthday card, invitation or simply a greeting card – a unique card can be made in no time at all and is much more personal than a purchased one. Beautiful lettering and a twig or fresh flowers make the card truly unique. You can easily make your own DIY card using templates and the pigment liner.
What you need
Ruler, template for the lettering, cutter knife, flower/twig, paper for the card
Print out the template for the desired lettering.
Shade the back of the template with a soft lead pencil. (e.g. Noris lead pencil in HB or 2B)
Place the template on the card and draw over the lines with a sharp pencil. This will transfer the motif onto the paper.
Now start tracing the letters using the light-resistant, black pigment liner in the line width of your choice.
Mark the cutting edges with a lead pencil.
Use the cutter to cut along the lines. This creates a flap where you can insert fresh flowers or a twig of your choice.
And ta-da! Just like that, your greeting card is complete.
