It’s CASology time again, and this week we have another great cue for you:
This cue made me think of good old fashioned hand-writing. The study of handwriting is fascinating in itself, and it always amazes me to know that we each have a handwriting style so unique that it can be used to verify documents and in some cases, determine our state of health!
Being a leftie, I had to work especially hard at developing a handwriting style that was neat and legible. I did ok, but always marvelled at the rhythmic, un-smudged repetition, consistent spacing and letter slope that seemed to flow effortlessly from the hands of some.
So, with these memories firmly imprinted on my memory, I decided to firmly imprint some lettering into some vellum, and came up with this:
I dry-embossed a piece of vellum with a ‘Pretty Print’ retired embossing folder from Stampin’ Up. I loved the flowing cursive style of this embossing folder. I attached the vellum to my linen cardstock with glue-dots. For interest, I folded up a corner of the vellum to reveal my sweet little ‘love you’ sentiment, also in a gorgeous script, from Serendipity Stamps. The corner was invisibly secured with a glue dot. For a pop of colour, I added a tiny heart from Waffle Flower’s Bowtiful stamp set. For a homespun touch, I added some linen thread.
And there you have it!
