Spinners and Stripes

The patterned paper with game spinners inspired my card's theme and colors.  The spinner print and stripes work well together.  I like the finishing touches of the brown arrow and the clear spinner centers that I added.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) dark chocolate (brown), rustic cream, and the stripes print from PTI canyon clay (muted orange) pattern pack.  And the game spinner print from All About a Boy 6 x 6" pad by Echo Park.  
  • Clear spinner centers are "pearls" of Viva Decor gloss gel pen, transparent (000).  It looks milky at first, but dries very clear.  (Click on the image to enlarge and see the centers better.)
  • Banner notch is cut by hand.
  • Die is arrow from PTI sketched shapes.
  • Sentiment "You make my heart spin" is computer-printed in brown ink with American Typewriter font (expanded spacing).
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." (364)
