Creating Pretty Cards with sentiments in minutes

26 Oct

I usually prefer to have some greeting words or sentiment on my cards so they represent a theme. There are many ways to create them and below are some ways that I can think of:

1) Use rubber stamps which contains sentiment or greeting wordings.
First, rubber stamps are expensive to own and second it is boring (at least for me) to have all the cards bearing the same stamp unless there is a need for mass production of one design.

2) Write it.
My untidy handwriting just did not go well with the pretty papers. So I give this option a miss.

3) DIY (Do it yourself) with a computer and printer.
Get onto a computer and create the message desired using Microsoft words or other creative programs. Print it, Cut it and Paste it. Super Easy – isn’t it? Sometimes, I do that too as this option allows me to create any desired wordings.
There are also many free digital sentiments or word art available online for download. Two such blogs which I came across that offer free downloads are

and http://uprintables.blogspot.com.au
Check them out.

4) Use pretty scrapbook papers that contain wordings / sentiments.
There are lots of pretty scrapbook papers in the market. We know they do not come in cheap. To make my purchases more cost-effective, I get papers which have many tags or sentiments or wordings together with other coordinating background papers. In this way, I am able to break them all out to use for different cards or projects.

Below are some cards which I had created using the paper scraps in my stash. The theme here is LOVE LOVE LOVE.
May all of you be blessed with love and peace always. : )

Thanks for dropping by!
