Modern Calligraphy Fonts Obsession

I've had a lot of friends ask if I learned calligraphy or had my Christmas cards done by a calligrapher.  No and no.  

I actually bought a font I'd been eyeing for quite some time - Bombshell Pro - and printed them myself at home.  I love how it's a little more modern and fun variety of calligrahy.  At the time, I didn't realize that it actually is one of the same fonts on the front of my Christmas cards (from Tiny Prints again - Golden Holiday card).  Bonus!

My sister, Bailey, found an Etsy Shop that does fun personalized stamps.  She ordered a few stamps and embossed her own save the dates where it looks like gold thermography.  I don't want to spoil that surprise until they go out, but you will be so impressed when I can show them off!  

She inspired me and I shopped around and ordered a stamp from AngeliqueInk on Etsy to use on gift tags.

I ordered the handwritten calligraphy address stamp, but worked with Angi to customize to make the wording appropriate for gifts.
The process was so simple and I couldn't be more thrilled with the result. 

I bought gold and black ink from Michael's and ordered the white square scalloped tags on Etsy  ($5 for 20) as well.

  1. I'm totally stealing your idea for our Christmas cards! I keep putting off sending them out because I don't have the time to sit and address them - this will be so much easier!
