Miss You - Brown with Cream and Black

For Paula's current Operation Write Home design bootcamp lesson "how does it feel?" with a focus on texture.   I used dry embossing on the base layer, some visual texture in the dotted "ribbon" threaded through the label slots, and several interconnected layers.  The result has both visual and tactile interest.

It also fits the "all about him" masculine card theme for Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) December challenge for Operation Write Home.  Thanks, ODBD, for supporting our troops each month!

Double thanks to Paula - for her monthly bootcamp lessons, and also for her "Miss You" digi sentiment, which I used as my focal point!  I enjoyed working with it.  Click here for her original post. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) kraft, dark chocolate (dark brown), true black, vintage cream,  and the bitty dots print from PTI dark chocolate pattern pack.
  • The heart in the sentiment is colored with Copic marker E43.
  • Embossing folder is Darice dot point.
  • Dies are from My Favorite Things layered label set.  
  • The slot punch is by Cosmos.
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." (335)

Very nice card Cindy! You did a super job incorporating texture and I really like how you framed the sentiment so nicely in the layers. I'm glad you got to put the digi to good use. Thanks for joining in on the November Bootcamp!
