"I Miss You" Cards





Introduction: "I Miss You" Cards

Take aim and shoot your friends and family a unique greeting card telling you how much you miss them. This card looks like a miniature version of the target shooting silhouettes, except you're not looking to hit this target, but just shoot around it - "missing" it. You can take these cards to the local gun range for some inverse target practice, or simply poke holes around the target from the comfort of your home.

For this project I found online images of target silhouettes, then created a small card template in an image editor. I printed off a few and took them to the rifle range and set them up as targets. You could use any calibre or cartridge you like, but since these cards were so small I chose to use a .22 rimfire cartridge as it's small and easily aimed.

Of course, you don't have to bring your cards to the range to create holes. You can simply poke holes with a sharp pencil and get almost the same effect (though doesn't have the impact fatigue that ammunition does, is still very convincing).

If you wanted to make your own I've also included a PDF scaled to A4 (8.5" x 11") that you can print at home, along with the silhouette card and font template. You are free to modify and scale to make your own custom version.
