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.

Step-by-step tutorial

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.
