Teal Tree with Cream and Silver

My box for Operation Write Home is nearly full, and I'm adding a few more "missing you" cards.  This one is monochromatic with silvery touches - twine and a trio of small silver hearts. 

The tree and leaves are die cut into the top cream layer.  The tree trunk is also die cut and inlaid into the negative space.  The leaves are open to the patterned paper layer below. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) ocean tides (teal), rustic cream, and the damask print from PTI ocean tides pattern pack.
  • Dies are PTI mighty oak and trendy tree tops (hearts). 
  • Twine is platinum shimmer - cream with a silver thread - by The Twinery.   Love their mini twine bundles in a wide variety of colors.
  • Silver foil is Ranger Inkssentials metal foil tape.  Before die cutting, I adhered it to Neenah solar white card stock to make it heavier.  The hearts look very shiny in real life.
  • Sentiment "Missing you ..." is computer-printed in Monotype Corsiva font, expanded spacing, in teal ink.
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." (333)
