Types of Paper
Card stock is one of the most popular types of paper used in card making, but there are other kinds of paper as well. Depending on the effect you are trying to create, you can choose from vellum, parchment or speciality paper. As you get more experienced with card making, you can even opt to make your own paper.
Hand lettering is the art of drawing beautiful letters by hand. Different from calligraphy, this art does not need any special tools. Instead, you simply draw letters by hand using a simple pencil, and then you paint or draw over them with the ink of your choice. Hand lettering makes a homemade card look beautiful and distinctive. There are thousands of styles you can explore, or you can make up your very own font.
