One of my resolutions for the year was to make all birthday and celebration cards. I love stationery, my first job was in a stationery shop, I could spend a fortune on cards given the chance but due to budget issues I have been forced to cut back! I have been making these cards for my loved ones through-out the year, not only are they really sweet but personal too. They are really simple to make and I regularly make these on the train on my way into London for drinks. I'm no graphic designer but I'm really enjoying this alphabet design. All the steps are below:blank cards, pencil, rubber, calligraphy pen, a selection of coloured pens (I love Muji ones)
Step 1. Lightly draw your letter in pencil. Try and get a fairly swirly letter happening so you have places to drawn in your flowers.
Step 2. Go over your pencil with your pen, I always add a curve to the edges of the letters. Once dry rub out any pencil lines
Step 3. Draw little flowers, leaves and hearts (you can do whatever you like, these flowers are the only thing I can draw!) Once dry run and more pencil marks
Step 4. Colour in your flowers, I like to use neons and golds.
