This week at Just Add Ink, Di has set us the challenge to Just Add TypographyHere's what I found on Wikipedia:

"Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language readable and appealing. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefaces, point size, line length, line-spacing (leading), letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space within letters pairs (kerning)."

I decided upon using a collection of different fonts, to create the focal point of my card.  I used so many stamp sets to make this card!!  I have listed them all at the bottom of my post ... it does make me laugh that I told my husband that this card-making caper would save so much money (rather than buying cards)!  I just went through my stamp collection, and used a variety of stamps that were relevant for a baby card.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team creations; and we'd love to have you play along with us!

  1. Excellent job, my friend! I struggle with doing typography as you have so aptly demonstrated here, so I really admire how you fit it all together and it looks almost like one stamp! Very cute!

  2. Fun card - you have worked in all these sentiments beautifully. BTW, are you saying we don't actually save money by making our own cards??? :)

  3. Wow, I love what you have done with this technique Christine. Such a sweet baby's card.
