How to Make a “Missing You” Handmade Card

Create a handmade “Missing You” card using an adorable bunny in a pocket. This “Missing You” card will be a fun surprise for someone you haven’t seen in awhile.

A handmade “Missing You” card can be a lovely way to show someone how much you care about them. So many times, we send a quick text to check in with loved ones, but taking the time to craft something from hand and put it in the mail, is so much more personal!

We adore todays project by our amazing designer, Tracy. Not only does it look like a fun card to make due to the awesome stenciling, but her additional of the sweet bunny on the card added such a cute and charming touch. Follow Tracy as she gives us the steps to make this handmade “Missing You” card.

  • Begin with ‘4301-Bokeh Hearts Stencil‘. Stencil, on an A2 size panel, one layer of red hearts and one layer of pink hearts.

  • Stamp (on white cardstock) the pocket from the ‘36020-Animals in Pocket Set‘, as well as the bunny and the flower.

  • Color all three images using markers of your choice. Alcohol markers work best for blending.
  • Fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies, ‘36020D-Animals in Pocket Die‘.
  • Choose a piece of colored cardstock, stamp a sentiment and then white heat emboss it. Cut the sentiment into a small strip.
  • To assemble your card, place the heart stenciled panel onto another colored panel. As you can see, Tracy used blue cardstock to coordinate with the colored images.
  • Glue the images to the card as shown. Tracy used foam tape in various places to create depth.
  • To finish, glue the entire panel onto an A2 size card base.
