To make it fast, have your sentiment already created on your computer. You can have more than one sentiment design on a page if the sentiment is enclosed in a small area so you save paper as well.


  1. Select a pretty script font and type your message on your computer. This is a great time to personalize your card. Don’t forget to center your text.
  2. Create a thin border about half an inch around the entire sentiment. The border can be used as an element on your design or used as a cut line. If it’s used as a cut line, when you are ready to make a card, you don’t have to measure the cut line since it’s already printed which will save you time.
  3. Print preview the design and make any necessary changes.
  4. Print out the sentiment on lightweight, printable, cardstock paper. Refer to your printer manual for requirements. A laser printer is preferable since the ink does not bleed.

You can create this card for birthdays, get well soon or just a hello card as well. Since you already have the sentiment stored in your computer, all you have to do is change the text, print it out and you are ready to make your card.

If you are using cardstock paper to print it out, please refer to your printer instructions for paper weight requirements so you don't jam up your printer.

If you are using standard printing paper, layer two sheets of paper when making your card. This helps make the sentiment sturdier and helps white paper look opaque and bright.

  1. Print out the sentiment.
  2. Tape the sentiment over a blank sheet of the same colored paper. Apply tape along the inner edges of sentiment so there is no gapping inbetween the sheets of paper.
  3. Cut both sheets together.
