      I've just been working on a card and I just can't seem to get the sentiment to work with my design. I've tried a few different sentiments but nothing seems to work. I'm not really sure that it's the sentiment that is wrong, it seems to be more like the design doesn't need a sentiment…does that even sound right. So my question is Do any of you make cards that don't have a sentiment on them?

      Here's my card

        Very pretty card Steph! I don't think you need a sentiment on every card, sometimes it's nice to have a blank one when you just want to send a note.

        Ohhhhh what a super gorgeous card!!!!!!!!! love the layering, the color combo the fussy cutting, all so gorgeous!

        Don't stress yourself Steph. You can write your sentiment on the inside. right?!
        I have lots of card without a sentiment.

          Thanks for the help, I thought the same thing that you write it on the inside or just use it as a note card! 🙂

          Steph, I sell my cards here in a local cafe in Ireland and they requested I do non- specific cards… They sell faster there… So most of my cards for sale don't have sentiments… When I have a specific occasion for a personal card that is the main time I add a sentiment!! Funnily enough I am working 3 cards with Lady's Diary without sentiments this moing!!

          Love the layers and bling on your card, it is gorgeous without any sentiment on it!

            Steph, that card is stunning!!!!!
            I make a lot of blank cards that can be used at any time.
            (Check out the RR come Monday ;) )

            I also make just the fronts. When I'm ready to use it, I set up my inner folded cardstock and write/stamp on the inside before attaching my front. This way, if I mess up, it's no big deal because all I've ruined is that one (replaceable) piece.

              Well now I don't feel weird about not putting a sentiment on the card, thanks for all the compliments on my card ladies!

              I think it's beautiful the way it is Steph…gorgeous card!

              It's beautiful just the way it is and not every card needs a sentiment. In fact, most of my cards don't have one on the front.

                  Gorgeous card Steph – I love all the layers and your colours are so beautiful.

                  I very rarely put a sentiment on a card as I feel it doesn't always fit with the layers/embellishments I might be using. When my mother was alive she used to love having the cards I and the other members of the family made up through the year. She used to change them around a bit, and loved it when it when the card didn't say Happy Birthday!!

                    I love your card and I also enjoy blank cards as well. I've sold many blank cards and I like being able to customize them for the occasion. You do beautiful work!
