Home Decor with Hand Lettering and Cardstock

Hello everyone!  I’ve really been enjoying hand lettering over the past year and now am attempting to frame some quotes that I like.

Using Card Shoppe cardstock for hand lettering is perfect because it is so smooth and dense so that the pens just skate along the surface beautifully. For this project, I used Marshmallow Card Shoppe.

Then I did some paper piecing to make a sun and ocean waves using the new Mono Adhesive Cardstock. For the sun, I just cut out a circle and some strips for rays, then pulled off the backing and adhered them right onto the Marshmallow background.

After I embossed a piece of blue Mono Adhesive cardstock with a We R Memory Keepers “Waves” embossing folder and Evolution Advanced,   I cut out wave pieces and layered them at the bottom of the quote .

These pieces are really easy to layer because the Mono Adhesive cardstock is self-adhesive….just remove the backing and stick down!

Now I have a pretty Home Decor piece that is ready to frame!

I love this quote, and it just makes me happy to look at it.  If you don’t want to hand letter your own favorite quote, then just cut down your Bazzill cardstock to 8.5 x 11″ and pop it into your printer.  Then you can choose computer fonts to do the job!

Happy Crafting!
