Cut out and Calligraphy Card - Celebrate in Style

Off late I have been creating greeting cards for the celebratory season ahead. This "Celebrate in STYLE" card is one of my favourites. So I wanted to share with you all. It was fun making this card.

Celebrate in Style
Two techniques were used in making this card:
(I) Paper Cut Outs
(II) Calligraphy

I had a deep blue card stock piece (3.5 X 3.5 inches) from a previous project. Instead of throwing it away I thought of using it for a card. The "Polka Dots" paper were from my old projects' cut out stash.The shoes were drawn on the pattern paper and cut out in shape.

I love design writing. I have been learning Calligraphy from Youtube recently. It is really tough and needs a lot of practice. I have somehow worked out on one pattern. Just like any other creative art form, Calligraphy also requires innovative ideas to represent simple looking alphabets beautifully. 

I think, what STYLE is to humans, CALLIGRAPHY is to alphabets.

So the amalgamation of polka dotted shoes and calligraphic message ideas, created this "Celebrate in STYLE" card. I am really happy the way it turned out after completion. 

The size of the card is 4 X 4 inches.
