I’ve been known to fiddle with fonts for hours. Be honest…you’ve done it too. When I was designing stationery for our wedding, I must have downloaded and played with no less than 100 different fonts.

Lately, I’ve been loving engraved typography…it’s pretty popular right now and all over Pinterest. Of course you can download plenty of fonts in this style, but it’s super easy to use your crafting supplies to create a dimensional version of this look.

With this easy technique, you can create on-trend stationery that rivals anything you can purchase in a shop. For my designs, I kept everything simple, but adding a few holiday accents in traditional colors.

  1. So interesting to use alternative looks! While I love Christmas things, I’m thinking about a pale blue “boy” with a complimentary darker blue “boy” on top. I’m always looking for ways to use CSS’s great stamps in various ways! Thanks soooooo much!

  2. You’ve done it again, Amber! Always keeping us on our toes and “on trend” when it comes to the latest styles. What a cool card set and appreciate you sharing your technique secrets!

  3. What I love about your tutorials is that they just seem so doable! They’re so simple but turn out so elegant and I honestly feel refreshed like hey I can do that, and pretty easily too! Thanks so much and keep em coming (:

    1. Alicia! You don’t even know how much this comment means to me! You have pretty much summed up my entire mission! I want so badly to make DIY a doable, non-intimidating thing and it sounds like I might be doing an okay job at that! Thanks, girl. You made my day!
