A card for National Handwriting Day


Today is National Handwriting Day in the US and in addition to my written post above in support of cursive handwriting and the reasons why it should still be taught, I decided to make a card in honor of it. If you're a European reading this, you might not know that American schools are no longer uniformly teaching cursive handwriting.


I used a free vintage look graphic from Antique Images as my focal point, paper piecing the cuff. I created the sentiment with Honey Script font.


In keeping with the writing theme, I chose papers from Sassy Designs Air Mail digital paper pack with an old pen nib embellishment under the button.

Supply List
Paper—cardstock, Sassy Designs Air Mail digital paper pack
Image—Antique Images hand holding a pen
Dies—Die-namics square stax
Embellishments—pen nib, button, metallic twine
Font—Honey Script

I'm linking up with: Aud Stentiments Challenge Blog #123, Inspiration Destination challenge #17, Fab 'n' Funky challenge #243, Moving Along With the Times Button It!!! challenge and Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday challenge.
