It's day THREE of Impression Obsession's four-day Holiday Blog Hop, and today my cards are all about die-cut sentiments. These cards are so ME - simple layouts, bright colors, and bold sentiments. I love them, and I hope you do too! Let's take a look. . .I love to pair cute patterned paper with a simple sentiment, whether die-cut or stamped. It's an easy way to mass-produce cards for gifts, or knock out all your Christmas cards - plus, who DOESN'T have a never-ending stash of adorable patterned paper?  Both of these first cards are a pretty typical layout for me - one of my go-to designs, but it's tried and true and always looks cute, so why mess with it?

On the next card, I made the text the ENTIRE focus of the card. Before I created any of today's cards, I just did some die-cutting in the colors I wanted to focus on. To pull this card together, I simply mixed and matched words until they all fit, and then added the hearts to fill in as needed. A strip of patterned paper and washi along the bottom tied it all together.   For all of today's cards, I used two die sets that I turn to OVER AND OVER. Typewriter Sentiments and Love Words play so nicely together, and they are some of my most used dies this time of year.

Super cards. The patterned paper and colorful words pack a punch, while still making it easy to make multiples. I like that.

Carol Wortman said...

That is the perfect font for word dies. I'm not a script fan finding them hard to read at times. These are perfect especially to add to busy papers. Well done.
