Being a writer, you might think that deciding on text for a greeting card would come easily to me. But ironically, it is often the most time consuming part of my card making process. My writing skills lean more toward technical (how-to) kind of writing. Expressing my thoughts on a greeting card is something I find very challenging. Fortunately, there are strategies for those of us who are greeting card text challenged.
This is the YouTube video that inspired my current “Doodling, Hand Lettering & Stamps” eArticle. It was created by Rachel Bland who was kind enough to give me permission to include a small screenshot of her video in the eArticle and included permissions on YouTube for embedding so I can share it here as well. I found it to be really inspiring. I’ve been using more doodling and hand lettering in my cards ever since I saw this. See what you think!
