DIY calligraphy thank you cards

I really wish I had come up with a better idea than over-zealously deciding to hand-make every single thank you card from our wedding. I figured "hey, I still have a few months before I start working, why not?". Silly, naive me. While I did have more free time, I didn't realize just how exhausting it would be making 100+ cards. I eventually gave up and bought some punny store cards for the last few cards. If I could do it again, I would probably draw out a few designs and get them printed.

Next post, I will be posting another set of thank you cards I made for the wedding- some really punny, fun cards. So stay tuned for those!

The writing was done with black ink using my calligraphy tools. The flowers were done in watercolor with the black outlining done in with a Micron pen. While one card itself was relatively quick and easy, mass producing cards is probably not something I will try again in the near future.

PS- wedding thank you cards in general are super exhausting to write.
