OWH Vacation Challenge #8

Today's challenge on the Stars & Stamps blog was to make a Missing You card.  The troops would like some cards to send to their children.  I spent most of the day creating a tutorial for these cards.
I started the process by stamping the card parts onto 4 colors of cardstock.

The next step was to cut out all these individual pieces.

Now, I had to glue Snoopy pilot's helmet and scarf onto his body.
The next step was to cover the white edges with a black marker.

Then, I glued the dog houses and Snoopy onto the blue layer that had been prestamped with part of the image.


I used the word die from The Cuttlebug Love Language set and cut out the words Miss You from red cardstock, then glued them all onto the cards.

I used some Art Impressions grass stamps to add some grass to bottom of the card.  The final step was to trim this blue layer to 4' X 5 1/4", the glue it to a white base card.
