Hi everyone, I'm Gadis of @madebymutiara and today I'll be showing you how to create a Botanical Christmas Card. Before we start the tutotial, I'd like to share a little bit about myself. I've been lettering since 2016 and I love using many different types of mediums to create lettering pieces that inspire and uplift others! My favourites are watercolor inks and chalk markers. I also make YouTube videos to share what I know about growing on Instagram and I love getting to know others in the lettering community. 😊
Large Brush Pens (I use Zig Kuretake Brush Pens)
Draw 2 grid lines in the middle of the paper and letter the phrase "Merry Christmas" lightly with a pencil in calligraphy.
Use a brown brush pen and letter over the pencil sketch.
Draw a border around the letters. Then draw lines to split the paper approximately into 12 equal segments.
For each segment, draw a branch of leaves using a green brush marker. Start with the stem and use the broad side of the brush marker to draw each side of the leaves.
Use different shades of green and repeat the previous step to draw the branches of leaves.
Erase the pencil lines once the ink has dried.
Use a red brush marker to draw berries of different sizes in the empty spaces between the leaves.
And you're done! Want to see a step by step video demo of this tutorial, click here to check it out!
Merry Christmas ya'll!
