Red with Cream Hearts - Love

Another bright "love" card for my Operation Write Home box.  The cream card stock is shimmery, and very nice in real life, though it doesn't come across well in my picture.  

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), cream shimmer, and the damask print from PTI pure poppy pattern pack.
  • Dies are My Favorite Things double dot border and PTI limitless layers: 2-1/4" hearts (plain and scalloped hearts).  The cream diamonds are inner cutouts (scrap) from the border die. 
  • Sentiment "Love" is cut with the Silhouette Cameo.  I used PilGi font for the L and e, two ovals for the o, and Lucida Handwriting font for the v.  It took a bit of editing with the knife and offset tools, but the result was worthwhile. 
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." (404)
