Dark Green with Yellow and Rusty Red

Strong colors, shapes, and patterns.  The gingham and small dots have a clean and modern energy in this setting.  I like this card a lot.

The rusty red (Papertry Ink's terra cotta tile) is a great color, but always hard to capture in a scan or photo, where it tends to look much too red.  So I'm happy to have it look good enough to post!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) terra cotta tile (rusty red), pinefeather (dark green), summer sunrise (orangey yellow), and gingham and bitty dots prints from PTI pinefeather pattern pack.
  • Stars are punched with a 1/4" Fiskars hand punch.
  • Die is PTI wonderful words: thank you.  The pinefeather is inlaid into the terra cotta tile.
  • The zig zag border on the summer sunrise panel is cut with Silhouette Cameo.  I took a smaller-scale border design and enlarged it.
  • Embroidery floss is DMC #920.
