I wanted to exaggerate the ascenders and descenders for a cool effect.

Birthday Card for my Daughter

Birthday Card for my Daughter

I have so much fun creating these cards that I came up with! My daughter lives far away and so I used a map of her new area and some fun and colorful typestyles from old magazines, etc. to create this card. The bottom strip of map on the front is from her former city of Chicago and the inside flap is from our home state. It’s a cool way to show the different locations of her life so far!

I just had to make my son-in-law, work for his birthday message! I know he likes to do puzzles, so I cut up the card to make him figure it out! 🙂

A homemade card is expected now, a store bought one just won’t do.

In our Guild we have Calligraphy Pals. We send them a little something every other month or so.  This was my pal last year and I knew that she liked butterflies so I made her a few cards with different styles of butterflies.

Being creative with the cards and utilizing different techniques we learned at our Guild meetings was so much fun!

Let me know if you’d like me to design something for you using your favorite animal or object.  See my contact page.

Calligraphy Work – April, 2012

This is a card that I made for my niece for her 31st birthday. I was utilizing things that I learned in a workshop on Illumination by Rosemary Buczek.
