Step 1: Draw a heart shape inside the card

I’m using the design from my Valentine’s Lettering Workbook to trace over the heart shape and transfer it to my card.

Step 2: Start drawing the floral doodles around the heart shape.

Use the design in Step 1 as inspiration to draw the floral doodles around the heart shape using your white Gelly Roll pen 08.

Step 3: Sketch your sentiment inside the card

Once you’re done with the floral doodles around the card, sketch your lettering inside the shape. This is so you make sure the love-inspired phrase will fit inside the heart shape.

Step 4: Hand Lettered your sentiment inside the heart.

I’m using my style of modern calligraphy combined with block lettering to letter “Happy Valentine’s Day.”

For the “Valentine’s” hand lettering, I used the pink Pentel Fude Brush Pen. I wanted this handmade card to pop even more, so I wrote the rest of the Valentine’s sentiment with the black Tombow Fudenosuke – Hard Tip.

Step 5: [Optional] Add details to the lettering.

If you want your lettering to pop even more, add line shadows using the same white gel pen.

That’s it!

You made a beautiful and heartfelt DIY card you can use for Valentine’s Day. Swap the message inside and give it to a loved one on a special occasion to show your love for them!
