The style of card will dictate the type of saying or sentiment to include.
Matching the Easter sentiment or saying to a handmade card is very important. An amusing or funny saying may look incongruous on a classic or traditional religious Easter card, whereas it would be totally appropriate on a cute or light hearted design.

How to Add a Sentiment or Saying to an Easter Card
Adding a sentiment or saying to an Easter card is an important part of the design. If the words are to appear on the front of the card, then it is essential that they complement the overall feel of the card. Here are some ways to add sentiments and sayings to an Easter Card:
- Sentiment Stamps – if you are lucky enough to have the perfect Easter sentiment stamp then it is simple to stamp a sentiment onto a card. Experienced stampers can stamp directly onto the card itself. Newer stampers, however, or people who worry about a stamping 'wobble' spoiling their card, may wish to stamp onto a piece of paper or cardstock and add this to the card. Tip – draw a border around the sentiment or color the edges using a complementary colored pen or ink pad to draw the sentiment into the main card design. This will stop it from looking as though it has been simply stuck on as an afterthought.
- Alphabet Stamps – alphabet stamps are a good fall back for the times when the perfect sentiment stamp remains elusive. As this entails stamping each individual letter separately, beginner stampers or stampers in a hurry may want to opt for short sentiments. Tip – stamp onto scrap paper first to see how much room a stamped sentiment will take. If you need to split the sentiment over multiple lines of text, experiment to see how different configurations will look.
- Printed Text – adding printed text to a rubber stamping project can often be a good alternative, particularly when time is short and the right sentiment stamps are not to hand. There are many fonts that are suitable for Easter cards. Again, match the style of font to the design of the card.
- Handwriting – many people are concerned at the thought of handwriting sentiments or sayings on cards, worrying that bad handwriting may detract from the beauty of a handmade card. This is usually far from the truth, however, as a handwritten sentiment adds a special touch that makes the card even more unique.
