​​​​​​​Calligraphy Classics Tip Sheet :​
​​
​​
​​
​​
​​​​​1.  Use an ombré inking technique with these large sentiments. Ink the entire phrase with ​
​a lighter ink and then ink just the lower (or upper) half with a darker ink, taking care to ​
​blend them slightly in the middle.​
​​
​2.  The emboss resist technique works beautifully with these sentiments. Heat emboss ​
​them in white on white cardstock, then sponge ink or watercolor over the sentiment. The ​
​embossed area will resist the color.​
​​
​3.  After stamping the sentiment in a dye ink, go over the lettering with a moist paintbrush ​
​to give it a hand-painted look.​
​​
​4.  Pair these phrases up with any of the Cover Plate Frames for a quick and easy card.​
​​
​5.  They can also be used with the Garden Garland frame. Die-cut the garland and trace ​
​the interior of the frame onto your card front and then stamp the sentiment. The pencil ​
​guideline will help with placement and can easily be erased when no longer needed.​
​​
​6.  Stamp a sentiment repeatedly in a light color, like Soft Stone, just slightly offset from ​
​your original impression to give it a dimensional shadow look.​
​​
​7.  Fill an entire background with a single sentiment.​
​​
​8.  Experiment with different orientations for sentiment placement. Try vertically and ​
​diagonally over the standard horizontal.​
​​
​9.  The scale of these sentiments is also appropriate for tucking inside a card. Play ​
​around with adding smaller companion sentiments from other sets underneath.​
​​
​10.  The small flowers and leaves can be used to accent the lettering.​
