Friday Focus – 2013 Valentine’s Day Card 4

Happy Friday, all!

Today I created a card using the world’s smallest list of supplies. ;) Cardstock, white pen, scissors, and a pencil. This is a card that even those with minimal supplies could create. Don’t be afraid to try a card like this, even if you hate your handwriting. Seriously, it’s going to look awesome when you add swirls and thicken up the lines!

You’ll want to use a pencil and a good eraser. And be sure to let the white ink dry (if you use a white pen) before you erase!

Be sure to watch the whole video (it’s a long one!) for tips and tricks on creating your own custom card. I think it would be fun to incorporate the recipient’s name in the design, too! :)

  1. Loved this video, Kristina! So glad you willingly share your expertise. By the way – love the colour of your polish!

  2. That’s a fabulous idea, Kristina! I stopped in also to thank you for your work on the Clean & Simple Card Making 2 series. I thoroughly enjoyed it and still have lots of inspirational card ideas to try!!

  3. This was fun to watch. I’m not sure I’ll trust my handwriting for a card yet, but I’ll think about it. I, too would like to tell you how much I enjoyed the Clean and Simple 2 Class with you and Jennifer and Julie and all the guest artists. It was such a learning experience and lots of fun and I love that I can go back and view it over and over when I need to refresh my memory!

  4. Great video! Great for the doodler in us all. Thanks!

  5. so cute! think it would be super cute on black paper with the white pen…looking like chalkboard art! thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Thank you for giving me the inspiration. Many times I’ve tried to engage in block capitals. I hope you will be more similar examples. You are so good at calligraphy.
