"YOU MEAN THE WORLD TO ME" lot of cards *w/measurements

This card pictured above is one I made a while back. I liked the layout so much, I decided to make a bunch more.  I cut and stamped everything and had put together a card kit that I took to TN, but this was one of the kids that my mom and I wasn't able to get to, so I thought I'd go ahead and assemble it. I used Mini Brads from the Eyelet Outlet on the cards when I made them before, last night while assembling all these cards, I decided to leave the brads off.

Everything is laid out and ready to be put together.. yeah!!

When I started putting these together I didn't realize how many layers there was...  I am running very low on adhesive.. like ONE box left.. yikes!  so I was trying to find creative ways to get these all put together using my ATG tape and Scor-Pal Tape.

Here they all are.. all put together.


card base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

black layer:  4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
pattern layer:  4"  x 5 1/4"

large panel:

black layer:  3 3/8" x 4 5/8"
pattern layer:  3 1/4" x 4 1/2"

rectangle layer:

black layer: 2 5/8" x 3 3/8"
pattern layer:  2 1/2" x  3 1/4"

banner flag:
black layer;  1 3/4" wide *I cut mine about 1 1/2-2" because it was going to be tucked up under the other layer and you wasn't going to see it. 
pattern layer:  1 5/8" wide.    I laid the pattern on the black layer and then cut the fish tails, then moved up the pattern paper when I adhered them together.

sentiment was stamped on a punched out circle and layered on another punched out circle.


card stock:  black, cream
pattern paper: WeRMemory Keepers Storytime line: Hansel  and Big Bad Wolf
stamps: Stamps of life Phrases2Say
ink:  Hero Arts Black
accessories: Scor-Pal, Circle Punches and Foam Tape

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

Queen of Layering...thanks so much for the inspiration and especially the measurements.
I have a ring binder of all your creations and use them alot. I did not do much layering until I found your blog and samples

A big thank you for all your inspiration and sharing ! Really love you including measurements, thank you. You seem to make a lot of one card at a time. Do you have a special group that you support (other than OWH?)

I really like that card! I'm really not too good on the computer yet, though I'm learning. I just want to say that I have been following you for awhile now, not sure how long and I have used some of your ideas to recreate. And I thank you.
I live in Overbrook, Kansas and I am the Director of a Non-Profit Ministry called Grace Card Ministry. A small group of us get together & make cards for Military Families, Jails, Topeka Rescue Mission, a Penitentiary, Several area nursing homes,a Backpack Buddies food program. We also make Birthday cards, Prayer, & Thinking of You cards.
So you can understand why I need all of the ideas for handmade cards I can get!
I come from a family that has six generations of military men, some retired as well.
We also lost our nephew in Bagdad stationed at Camp Slater in 2004.
I thank you for all your hard work that you do as well as my admiration for Operation Write Home.
