spreading joy with handmade cards
There's a special magic that comes with making and writing cards that we don't get in our modern everyday lives.
When we sit down to make a card for someone, we open our hearts to that person.
We spend time thinking about our special connections to them as we draw or write, and that love comes through in a tangible way when we make a card just for them.
I think that handmade cards are a bit of a lost art, but I am ready to bring them back!

Card Course FAQ
No! If you have some practice lettering, that's great, but I'll walk you through some hand lettering basics right here in the course. I'll teach you step-by-step, no previous experience (or good handwriting) necessary.
You'll receive lifetime access to all of the video trainings in this course: over 1.5 hours of footage! The course also comes with a 30-page download packet filled with alphabet lettering practice, illustrations, design ideas, and lots more!
All you REALLY need to do this course is a writing utensil and a blank card! I'll be showing you some other tools that I like to use, but you'll be surprised how many things you already have lying around the house can help you make your own cards.
Yes, you can! We have a pack of size A2 (4.25'x 5.5") cards made especially for this course using high-quality, super smooth 14 pt. cardstock. You'll be able to select them once you add the course to your cart. We also have TONS of brush pens in our shop, so you can get all the exact tools I use in the course right here on our site, no other prep required.
Why Hand Lettered Cards?
I am all about using lettering as a mindfulness practice. It's an amazing outlet that helps me relax and practice helpful affirmations (my Daily Mindful Lettering Books are great for this!)
But the more you practice lettering, the more you might want to USE it for something. And what better way to use your lettering than by putting it on a greeting card to send to someone you love?
Whether you already have some lettering skills or you'll be getting started with this course, using lettering to make handmade greeting cards is a great way to bless other people's lives and to connect with other people.
