Hi everyone! It’s Ashley with a couple of fun cards for you today. Usually when I think of big titles it’s something I use on a layout. How about trying it on your card designs, though? Most designs and techniques can be translated from one project to another, whether you like working with layouts, cards, Traveler’s Notebooks, pocket scrapbooking, or more.
On my first card, I used the word LOVE for my sentiment. I’ve actually done a similar look on a layout and thought it would be fun to use it for a card too. I cut the letters on my Silhouette Cameo to fit the card base. Before placing the letters on the card, I cut a few strips from the 6×6 paper pad to create a border around the edge of the card. I like the look of the different colors and patterns it brings to the card.
Since I was using a large title on the card, I kept everything else on the simple side. I used the mini letter stickers to add the word “YOU” to complete the sentiment. Then for a different texture on the card I used two of the puffy stickers. The heart shape is so cute in the center of the “O” and the floral puffy sticker helps draw the eye down to the bottom portion of the card.
For my second card, I used the alpha Thickers from the Oh My Heart collection to create a long title that fills the front of the card. I started at the bottom of the card with my sentiment and worked up from there to get the spacing and alignment right. I decided to align my sentiment on the left hand side of the card, but you could try it on the right hand side too for a different look.
Once I had the sentiment in place, I machine stitched through the Thickers. The chipboard Thickers are easy to stitch through and it also adds a fun texture to the letters. Since I had the extra space on the right side of the sentiment, I brought in a few florals from the Oh My Heart collection. I mixed one of flowers from the ephemera pack with a few fussy cut flowers from one of the papers in the 6×6 paper pad.
I hope you’ve found some inspiration for using big titles on your cards! Give it a try on your next handmade card or try it out on a layout if that’s your thing!
