Funky Frame Al­pha­bet

CardMaker - - Hand Lettering For Cards - Let­ter­ing and pro­ject by Nancy Burke

Be­fore be­gin­ning, use a pen­cil and ruler to lightly draw up­per and lower guide­lines where you would like your let­ters to be on your word strip.

1. Us­ing a pen­cil and ruler, lightly draw var­i­ous sizes of boxes along guide­lines. Leave enough space be­tween each box so that you have plenty of room to add ad­di­tional dec­o­ra­tive de­tails.

2. Us­ing a pen­cil, lightly draw ba­sic let­ters in­side each box, keep­ing let­ters straight.

3. Us­ing a pen­cil, add a “frame” around each box by out­lin­ing each box with a wider, slightly wavy line.

4. Fill in frames with col­ored pen­cils or mark­ers.

5. Fin­ish al­pha­bet by trac­ing over lines with a black pen and eras­ing any vis­i­ble pen­cil lines. ●
