I find myself needing ‘words of encouragement cards’ often these days. And guess what? Stampin’ Up! has the ‘Strong of Heart’ stamp set that gives you opportunity to help in more than one way.
Make these easy DIY Words of Encouragement Cards and support your family and friends going through a rough patch AND know that $3 from the sale of each ‘Strong of Heart’ stamp set goes to support heart health.
I kept the stamping simple, which is perfect to create a quick card to put in the mail to someone who needs it.
In my video, I also share how to make the “messy bow” with the silver cord that is under the greeting plus a few other stamping tips that I am sure will help you with all your card making.

I’d love to hear who you’re going to send words of encouragement cards to THIS week! Let me know!!
As card makers, I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in making, that we forget to send them. I challenge you send a “note of encouragement” card this week. If you do, leave me a comment and let me know you took up my challenge.
Words of Encouragement Card Details
I used the same card recipe (measurements) for both of my Words of Encouragement Cards.
- THICK Basic White card base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
- Basic White layer: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″
- Black: 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″
Why Always “Eighths”?
I am often asked why I always use “eighths” when cutting my layers. It’s a personal preference. I like the smaller border but if you prefer a larger border bump up the measurements I gave by 1/8″ to get to the next 1/4″.
So, for this one, you would cut your black layer: 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
In the video I had the larger piece and I show how they look different.
