Never be stuck for inspiration again. This template is crammed full of greetings, to use in your own card designs and gifts. This calligraphy was done using a Leonardt 30 nib, but can be replicated it using most pointed nibs or a small brush pen.
Buy a pad of semi-transparent paper called 'layout paper' and trace this template again and again.
Downstrokes: Start at the top then pull down and apply pressure, so the pen’s tines open up to create the thick line.
Upstrokes: Loosen your grip to reduce the pressure you put on your nib, start at the bottom and glide gently upwards.
Cross Strokes: Again loosen your grip and go gently. Cross strokes are a light with a touch more pressure than upstrokes.
