Whole Lotta Missin Goin On Cards

OWH put out a call for missing you cards so I have been working on that theme.  I made four different versions of this card - two masculine and two feminine - for a total of 18 cards.  These are the standard A2 sized cards but the sentiment comes in two parts so I included the second part on the inside of the card.  I hated taking up writing room on the inside but my original idea of putting the second part of the sentiment under a lift flap on the front of the card worked better in my head than it did in reality.  I may also try using this sentiment set on a tag that slides out of an envelope attached to the front.

This was a much more simple design than I am used to using.  I'm trying to push myself out of the over done box I seem to crawl back into all the time!


Men's version made with paper from DCWV Rustic Stack and the women's version was made using a paper stack from Colorbok.  I also used some paper I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby made by The Paper Studio called Football Texture.  The solid colors I used were from Core'dinations.

Paper Sizes:
5 1/4" x 4" for the base
2 3/4" x 1 1/2" for the outside bottom mat
2 1/2" x 1 1/4" for the outside middle mat
2 1/4" x 1" for the outside sentiment
3" x 1 1/2" for the inside bottom mat
2 3/4" x 1 1/4" for the inside middle mat
2 1/2" x 1" for the inside sentiment

I used several Tim Holtz Distress Inks in the project - Tea Dye and Barn Door
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby brand from the sewing department (normally on sale two for $1 - way better deal than buying ribbon in the scrapbooking section)
I used my ATG for most of the construction and then used Micro Glue Dots to keep the ribbon in place.

The sentiment was part of a fundraising package of digis from The Doodle Pantry -  There are lots of great digis in the package and I also received scads of freebies with my purchase so I'll be trying those out soon.
