Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal. It took me some time as a new cardmaker to learn how to make a card with large sentiments. Then, I discovered that they really could be the focal point of your card and I was hooked! Cards with large sentiments are my favorite cards to make and stamp sets that have many are sure to end up on my order. Festive Everything is a fantastic stamp set for your collection, especially since you can use it for many holidays and occasions. I love that they are great on cards and gifts, too!

My Secrets to Making This Festive Everything Project

Card Dimensions for a Tri-Fold Card
  • Card Base: 6 1/4″ x 11 1/2″ – scored at 2 1/2″ and 7″. These measurements give you a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/4″ tri-fold card.
  • Layer 1 – Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 6″ (2), 2 1/4″ x 6″ (1)
  • Layer 2:
    • Acetate: 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″ (1) and 2 1/8″ x 5 7/8″ (1)
    • Whisper White 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″
Card Details
  • This card came together easily and would be a fun card to make multiples! The acetate adds such a fun and interesting accent to showcase your favorite color.
  • Staying with the theme to keep the sentiments as the focal point, this card turned out wonderfully! The sentiment on the front was stamped in the Silvery Shimmer Delicata Pigment ink. This is a new ink in the holiday catalog. I decided to try the silver and love it! I will definitely be getting the other new on my next order.
  • The sentiment was cropped out, then the background die was cut in Silver Foil and Pretty Peacock
  • My secret for keeping the sentiment on the inside flap is to figure out where you want it behind the front flap. You can then add adhesive to it, place it one more time into position then close it onto the inside flap and it should be perfectly placed! This sentiment was carefully placed because I wanted a bit of the branch details to show through when the card was closed but the sentiment hidden.
  • Embellish to your heart’s content! I cut out more snowflakes, branches and added faceted dots.
