My latest #Redbubble upload available on tees. Enjoy.  Share  #smile

I hope I've managed to make this amusing without it being kitsch or icky cute?

My mother had me tested redo

I took another look at this design over the holiday break and decided to simplify it!

Hope this version has more appeal?

Black Chancery Demo

Here's a demo card for another freeware font I downloaded recently.
Enjoy and hopefully get some ideas for calligraphy or typography.

Sweet Bliss REDO

I got a negative response to the first version of this design but since people said they liked the poem I redid it with less color and a different font.

Appreciate some help with promo folks since I would like to buy a DSLR camera with a zoom / telescope lense and pay for some PRO training.

Truncated Pyramid Box Template

This png should have A4 print dimensions and be resizable for larger paper sizes 

I've tried to show how I generated shapes in Inkscape and then duplicated and moved the sections into the template.

The tabs are a bit wobbly. 
Hopefully the diagram will give you ideas for templates much better than mine.

Palatino Linotype Demo

Palatino Linotype is one of the classics at least for me.

Elegant yet strong and not as stark as ARIAL which I find too plain.

Don't overlook those fonts which come installed with the computer. Many of them are installed because they are reliable  standards.

Cardinal Font Demo

A Demo of the Cardinal freeware font.

I used an A5 svg file and then converted to png for web upload.

This font fuses aspects of several European fonts and scripts.

I am not a mistress of calligraphy or typography but I do hope my experiments and other works have been and will continue to be of some use if only providing inspiration of the "I can do that better!" variety? Enjoy!

Box Template

I've been experimenting with creating my own templates.

As this is a #svg generated and edited in #Inkscape and then exported to 3png format you should be able to resize it ?

The file is suppose to match an A4 page without wasting too much space.

Let me know if you improve it?  I know this looks a little uneven.

The tricky part was adding the tabs to the #template !
