Miss you card

Additionally, this particular card is special because it’s unique and humorous.

The card hinges at the corner instead of the edge. And, this little feature relates to one of the many simple ways of creating unique cards.

This blue card is also a funny card. Because it expresses that the person sending the card feels blue too.

Since there’s already one funny statement in front of the card, put another funny one inside the card.

Not sure what to put down? Don’t worry. There are a few ideas below.

Add a funny phrase inside the miss you card too

One cool idea is to complement the funny phrase in front with another amusing expression inside the card.

Just like the front, the idea here is to use the blue nature of the card in the message. Here are a few examples:

First example.

...And it’s so bad that I can’t
even stand the color blue anymore.
Still missing you

Second one.

Because you are not here,
there’s no more color in my life...
...except blue.
I really miss you

Third idea.

I’m already feeling blue
so please come and stop me
before I start singing the blues.
‘Wish you were here

Next, let’s create the card.
