#the100dayproject : handmade card 80/100-2 : missing you


sometimes when i see a stamp or a die-cut set in a new release from a company, i just know that i have to have it. this was one of those sets - a combo of stamps and dies and they are even more adorable than i expected! this all worked out perfectly because the inspiration wheel landed on die-cut element for today's spin!

Patterned paper, a stamped and die-cut image and a sentiment round out this missing you style card. Pale pink and navy blue colors add a little softness and a little boldness to the angled background. A small milk carton has been die-cut and on the side is the image of a tiny kitten along with the stamped sentiment, "Missing you. Every. Single. Day." A darker blue envelope is shown and included.

i mean for cuteee! how adorable is this little die-cut milk carton? and the way that it can be customized along the side like the cartons of the past with a missing child/animal image? so. freaking. cute. 

it's hard to tell, but i colored the left side of the carton with a pale pink to coordinate with the pale pink in the patterned paper as if to represent a slight shadow. the little cat image has been colored with prismacolor markers and since i don't have a cat, i decided to just use several shades of grey. i think it works. the sentiment reads "missing you every. single. day." and i think it's incredibly fitting for sending to so many people!

 An angled view of the detail on the die-cut milk carton, which features a die-cut, stamped and hand colored kitty cat. The sentiment "Missing you. Every. Single. Day." is stamped in black ink.

the stripes on the patterned background come from patterned paper and they're intentionally a little wonky and not completely straight. the entire element is accentuated by the fact the paper has been die-cut using a diagonal rectangle that is also a little wonky. i lined up the carton with the edge of the paper to help guide your eye down and across the card front. 

A flat-lay view of this missing you style card. Stripes in a combo of pale pink and navy blue highlight the background behind a die-cut milk carton with the image of a tiny kitten and the stamped sentiment, "Missing you. Every. Single. Day."

there's a few people that i am already wanting to send this card to - how about you? i think there are so many ways that i can customize this and i can't wait to design more options. 

i'm so thankful to the amazingly talented people who design these products - i often have ideas for things, but i just don't think i would ever be capable of making them come to life. but lucky for me, i don't have to! 

80 cards down, meaning there's only 20 days left this year! that is insane...i'm not ready. but also, i totally am. how about you?
