Who has a RAD DAD? You are never too old to make your dad feel special with a handmade card!


  • Paper (printer paper or cardstock)
  • Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens (S)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil to sketch
  • Eraser

To start of this card you want to fold your paper and sketch your letters. Remember to sketch lightly so when you go to erase you can get rid of the lines.

Letter Sketch

Then, pick your PITT pen colors. I used 3 but you can use as many (or as few) as you would like. Use your ruler to draw diagonal lines across your card, leaving a white space where the letters are.

More Lines

When you have finished all of your lines it is time to erase. *Make sure you let the ink dry fully so you don't get any smudges.

Before Erasing


After you are done erasing all of the lines you can decide to leave the card as is or fill in some of the lines for a BOLDER effect.

Erin is a teacher by day and a creator by night. She loves to try and inspire creativity in her students everyday! Because she’s busy during the day, the night is when her creativity gets to explode into the world through lettering and messing around with watercolors. Her biggest advice would be to not compare your art to other people’s art! Be uniquely you!
