Moves are hard on everyone. Right now, I'm in "friend" withdrawal with most of my closest friends in another state halfway across the US. Even with technology, it's hard not being able to spend in person time with them.
electronic cutting machine
basic library shapes and font library (rectangle and Lucida Handwriting)
Markers (and adaptor - in this case, it's Bic-Mark-its, AD adapter and foam pencil grip hack)
Stencil of choice (mine is from Stencil Girls)
Small Heart punch or a similar shape from the basic library shapes for you machine
White card stock for cuts and for your card base.
Colored or patterned cardstock (3 x 2 inches to go behind the card front cut)
Using your electronic cutting machine, cut your pieces. Set all pieces aside and punch a heart out if you didn't include that with your cutting file.
With the darker toned marker, spray the word "missing" and run through a Xyron X machine for easy application to your card front.
Place the colored paper behind the YOU and adhere. Add the card front to the base and using the X apply some adhesive to the heart and apply in the center of the O of YOU and your card is nearly ready to mail. Be sure to personalize it on the inside just for you friend... I have no doubt it will be a keeper when it arrives in their mailbox.
Hoping your new year is off to a good start and you're creating space in your schedule for some crafting time this year!
