My granddaughter “Tenley Carpi” was born last month and I thought I would create a keepsake using the Duetica Lettering Arts System to capture this special moment. I love the swirls of the DT Woodwynd font and the beauty of the DT Mandolyn font and the Duetica Lettering System make it is so easy to personalize whatever you want to create. I created the “T” in the DT Woodwynd font and placed it on the left side of an 8 1/2″ x 11″ landscape document. I created the name in the DT Mandolyn font and placed it in a text box centered on the bottom right of the document; creating and placing the date ( which was also done in DT Mandolyn and the numbers were done in the DT Woodwynd font) directly below the name. I printed this out on a tone on tone yellow decorative cardstock with pink ink. I then used my laser square to layer and line everything up, gluing in place. Then used gem tac to adhere the crystals to highlight the “T”. I love how it turned out plus it was quick and easy to create.
