Happy Mother’s Day Calligraphy

Happy Mother’s Day!!
Here are a couple cards I penned for this very occasion.

The calligraphy for the top card was done with a dip pen on tracing paper, then affixed to a stiffer paper to hold the card shape. I like the smoothness of writing on tracing paper, but I need to figure out a sharp-looking way to safely attach it to other surfaces.

The calligraphy for the second card was done with a cartridge pen on calligraphy paper.
