Copperplate greeting cards - ECD Courage, Happy Anniversary
As I mentioned recently I took a Copperplate class with Paul Antonio... And our Guild is looking for stuff about "fauna" for our next journal... so I created these two cards.
Did the calligraphy using a Nikko G nib and Sumi ink on calligraphy paper, trimmed down and adhered to my card front. My cardstock bled... so had to improvise..

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Courage" and "Happy Anniversary" 2pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE
