Handmade Card Ideas Featuring a Sentiment

By | April 2, 2018

Today I have some quick and easy handmade card ideas featuring a sentiment.  Sometimes a sentiment is large enough to be the focal point of the card.  That’s what each of today’s cards have in common.

All the cards featured today use greeting sentiments from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.  The first three cards also use Picture Perfect 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and Tutti-fruitti Adhesive Backed Sequins.

They were also all cards I received in a recent card swap.  I’ve credited the creator of each card.

Here’s the first handmade card ideas featuring a sentiment.  This card was made by Sue Nurnberger.

PROJECT NOTES:

  • Featured Sentiment: Nothing says “birthday” better than confetti sprinkles and sequins and Sue used both on her card.  To highlight the focal sentiment, she used an oval die shape and stamped a bow as an accent.
  • Project colors: Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist, PeekaBoo Peach.
  • Products used: Stitched Framelits Dies, Banner Triple Punch

Here’s my last handmade card ideas featuring a sentiment.  This one was made by Sandy Carlson.

PROJECT NOTES:

  • Featured Sentiment:  This card is a fancy fold card, and the sentiment is placed on the smaller folded cardstock piece.  She accented the words by stamping a top and bottom border, then matting on a scallop square.  She also used a ribbon.
  • Project colors: Berry Burst, Blushing Bride
  • Products used: Layering Squares Framelits, Whisper White 1/4″ White Organza Ribbon

Here’s how it looks when opened:

 

I hope that you have discovered some new ideas for using just a sentiment as a focal point.  The one thing that all these cards have in common is that each of the sentiment pieces has been accented or highlighted in some way.  Keep this in mind as you make handmade card ideas featuring a sentiment.
