A NEW WORLD WITH THE WRITTEN WORD
• Board paper
• Envelope to size
• Watercolor palette
• Pen, nib, and ink
• Your favorite quote
1 Cut your board paper to twice the size of your envelope and fold it in half. This should fit your envelope perfectly.
2 On scratch paper, make a draft of how the quote will look like, taking note of the general shape, balance, and proportions of the layout.
3 Using watercolor, paint a light-colored background all over the front of the card. You can opt to use one or two shades from the same color family. Wait to dry.
4 Lightly pencil the quote on top of the watercolor background.
5 Trace the pencil marks with ink using your nib and pen. Try to cover the pencil marks as much as possible.
