Green and Brown Stripes - Love You Card

For today's card, I used Sketch #93 from the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog. I started to CASE Marianne's striped sample card, but then made some changes along the way. Thank you Marianne, for the inspiration!

The card stock is Ellen Hutson's golden brown (card base), Paper Source leaf (light green) striped with G24 and E25 Copic markers, and PaperTrey Ink fine linen (light tan) striped and framed with olive Copic multiliner and G24, G28, E25, and E29 markers. The twine is PaperTrey Ink rustic jute button twine.

My sentiment "Love you" is computer-printed with brown ink in "Hobo Std Medium" font. The dots are periods (...) formatted as "superscript" to raise them up above their normal position.

Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (104)
