Brown and Cream with Banners

Another monochromatic card today.  This one uses Sketch #189 from Operation Write Home.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) vintage cream, dark chocolate (brown), and the dark chocolate leaf print and fine linen (tan) bitty dots print from PTI pattern packs.
  • Die is the vine from PTI my mother, my friend set. 
  • Sentiment "Thank you for your kindness" is computer-printed in brown ink with Zapfino font, bold. 
  • The decorative lines on the sentiment panel are dots (periods) in Courier font with the letters hg and df in Dingbats 2 Wingdings 2 font.  (Edited September 15, 2013 with correct font name.)
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." (314)

Very nice card, crisp and manly! Such a cool font technique! I've never seen a use of the dingbats much less use them. I love the elegance using them in a sentiment.

This is so pretty! Love that punch you used at the left edge, it gives your card such an elegant feel!

Terrific masculine card! Love the border punch and the clever way you mastered the fonts and dingbats.
