Hand Lettering #8: Enjoy Mini Card Set, Cursive Style

Hello everyone!!! :o)

My third and last post today... If you missed previous two, just scroll down or follow direct links here and here.


I love mini cards and mini images. Combining both, I made this hand lettered, CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Enjoy Mini Card Set.


I drew a line and wrote word 'enjoy' on two white cardstock paper card bases in cursive handwriting styleI used dip pen nib and black drawing ink.


I prepared various hand lettered samples during my personal challenge Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2017 to color during a 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. These two also. I hand lettered them on DAY 9 of my challenge and colored it on a DAY 25 of Kathy's challenge. :o)

I had no idea what I want to do with hand lettered samples for days. Tiny image yes, but which one... Same or different image on both cards.... Nothing fit. And then I received an ADORABLE Gerda Steiner Designs 'Hoppiness' stamp set that I won at The Hoppiness Giveaway. I knew immediately I will use super cute birdie on my both cards.

I CASEd my own card, Sing Mini Card II. I went with same design and layout, but with different birds (from different artists), sentiments and colors.

I stamped birds on both card bases and colored them with colored pencils. I trimmed bottoms of both cards, covered birds' beaks and legs with transparent varnish to create glossy accents and left cards dry couple hours. As a finishing touch, I embellished cards with enamel dots.


Cards measurements: 76 mm x 89 mm (3" x 3.5")
List of supplies:
