I counted all my 6 x 6 paper pads last night.. a whopping 195.. yikes!~ I decided right then to use up one of the pads I had, that had been partially used. I made two of the "MISS YOU" cards like the one above.. and then started cutting out layers for a bunch more.. picture below.
I don't know how many I cut.. but after cutting all the layers, I decided to find a larger "missing you" stamp for all the rest of the cards so that I could punch out the circles for the sentiments so that they would go together faster. I made this one below with a "I MISS YOUR FACE" stamp and am going to finish up the rest as soon as I post this.
most of the cards use these measurements:
card base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
solid layer: 5 1/4" x 4"
pattern layer: 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
solid layer: 4 1/2" x 3"
pattern layer: 4 3/8" x 2 7/8"
on some layers.. the top panel was cut down so that some of the design of the bottom layer could be seen.. most of them I kept at 4 1/2" for the length, but the width was cut down to say 2 1/4" or there abouts. It depends on the pattern you are using.
flag is 1" wide and either punched, die cut or cut with scissors to make the banner end.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
