If you don't have a stamp for the sentiment you need, look to your computer! Here's how I made my sentiment above:
- Open a Word document and insert a 3" x 4.75" text box.
- Position the text box near the upper left corner of your document so you don't waste paper. 😉
- Select font and type sentiment toward the bottom.
- Fiddle around with different fonts, sizes, and positioning until satisfied.
- Left click on the text box and select Format Shape from the dropdown list.
- Select Line from the menu.
- In the color field, select No Line and then select Okay.
- Print your document and cut panel as needed.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
*The CCC ("Card Chain Challenge") is an international card exchange - you send a handmade card to the person above you on the list, and you receive one from the person below you on the list. If that's not enough of a win-win, I also randomly draw a prize winner each month. I reveal all the cards with links to each maker's blog or online photo gallery - which is a great way to increase exposure to your blog or photo gallery!. Please read the Rules and FAQ's if you want to play along. 😊
