Adding Sentiments to Handmade Card Techniques

Here are some articles about adding wording to handmade cards and useful supplies to have to hand:

The right word or sentiment can really help to make a greeting card that little bit extra special. If you can't think of the right thing to write then why not try writing a memory in the card. For example if it is the birthday of an old friend who you don't see so much of now, a shared memory from your childhood could make a nice and thoughtful addition to the card. Likewise, if you are giving a card to someone you know very well and exchange cards with regularly, why not just add a few words about what you are currently doing. The old adage 'it's the thought that counts' is particularly relevant with greeting cards, what ever the occasion, and showing someone you care with a few well chosen words can make a world of difference.

Add these sentiments and greetings to make the perfect finishing touch to your handmade cards. You could also add them to scrapbook pages to add a personal touch.
