OWH Missing U cards

Sandy announced a need for more Missing You cards.
I've had these cards made for about a week; ready to go in with my OWH November shipment.  So I thought I'd share them today.
In doing so, I hope that some of my lovely friends/followers can also contribute cards for this incredible cause.

I found an A2 sized alphabet embossing folder on the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby.  It's from The Paper Studio and I thought it was too cute to pass up....not knowing what I would do with it.
But it was on clearance.  I had to buy it.

After embossing, I just gave a quick swipe with my
white ink pad to accentuate the letters a bit.

All of the u's were punched out using my
Crop-A-dile Big Bite.

The sentiment is from 3 stamp sets.
The "missing" is by Papertrey Ink.
The "u" is by Studio G.
The arrow is from Cricut Posh Frames.

All of the papers (other than card bases)
came from my scrap box.

You can find the pink card in the following challenges:

Crafty Little Fairies  -- Top of the pops, inspired by a song
(Missing you by John that song!)
Crafty Ribbons -- #70 Anything goes with ribbon
Addicted to Stamps & More -- #71 Anything goes
The Paper Shelter -- For someone special
Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards -- Monochromatic 

The cards were super easy to do and the results are kinda' cute.
I think so anyway.
Now I'm really happy I'm a craft hoarder I can't pass up a bargain.
The embossing folder was definitely worth the couple of bucks I paid.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope some of you will be able to get some cards made for our great American service members.

  7. Ooo I like this embossing folder, I thought you had used sandpaper across the letters (which I always mess up) but after reading it was white ink, I think white ink needs to go on my too get list. Great cards, as always for a great cause. Happy to see you at CC&CC :) hugs x
