Hand Lettered Valentine Banner With FREE Printable
Sketch out a 6 1/4″ by 6″ heart with MONO J Drawing Pencil 2H grade on bond cardstock. Sketching with a harder grade pencil like a 2H is my preference because it creates lighter lines that are easier to erase. The MONO Zero Eraser makes detailed erasing, in tight spaces a breeze.
Then create layers and fill in with patterns.
Trim the sketch and tape it to a clean sheet of bond cardstock. Using the Cricut BrightPad, trace over the sketch with MONO Drawing Pens 01, 03 and 05.
Here is the final hand-drawn doodled heart. Be inspired to create your very own heart OR download my HAND LETTERED VALENTINE BANNER
Now I like doodling, but the coloring is always more fun! Use a combination of Dual Brush Pens 703, 723, 725, 743 and 815. TIP: For coloring with Dual Brush Pens print on a laser printer or copy machine, so the design doesn’t bleed when coloring with Dual Brush Pens. If you only have access to an inkjet printer, then colored pencils are the way to go.
Instead of creating a banner with a single word, I used one of my favorite quotes from the Beatles, “Love is all you need.” Use the brush tip of Dual Brush Pen N15 to create a bold, hand-lettered design. Placing one word on each heart.
To create the banner, attach the Valentine’s Day Hearts to a 36″ length of ribbon using Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive. The Tombow Xtreme line of adhesives are five time stronger than traditional adhesives, making them the perfect choice for mixed media projects.
