Calligraphy Christmas card

You don’t have to be an expert in calligraphy to use a quill and ink pot – simply by playing with squiggles and swirls you can create simple but effective cards.

You’ll need:

  • Plain coloured card
  • A calligraphy quill
  • A pot of white ink



Step one

Practice using the calligraphy quill on a scrap piece of card. Find the best, most comfortable way to use the quill and take note of how the ink works and how quickly it runs out. Have a play with patterns.

Step two

Once you’ve practiced, squiggle a Christmas tree with a few swirly baubles, a stump and a star on top on the card. Finish the card off with a message – like ‘Merry Christmas’!
