1. Print your announcement wording onto a sheet of card stock with crop marks for a 5″ x 7″ announcement. If you can’t print with crop marks, use a pencil and ruler to create crop marks.
2. Dip the brush into water. Wipe off excess water on the rim of the glass. Wet the card stock in between 2 crop marks.
3. Line up the ruler with those crop marks and hold the ruler down firmly with one hand. Pull up the corner with your other hand and continue tearing the sheet of card stock along the straight edge of the ruler. The moistened card stock tears unevenly giving it the appearance of a deckle edge. Repeat for the other three sides.
