A Lettering Step By Step

Hello, Everyone!

So. Hand lettering seems to be pretty popular¬†right now. I think it’s adorable, and it’s a good way to make something personal. That is why I have created a simple step-by-step for how to make¬†your own hand lettering in less than ten minutes. By just changing the color scheme, you can change the entire feel. It doesn’t take long, and it’s a whimsical way to spice up cards or letters!
