Pink and White Flower Hello with Green

A pink and flowery card, with bright white and green for contrast.  I like the crisp look of the white accents with the dark pink.

For Operation Write Home, I try not to make too many floral and feminine cards, which they get a lot of.  Sometimes though, it just feels like I need to create one.  For a gender-neutral card with this layout, click here

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) stamper's select white, limeade ice (green), hibiscus burst (deep pink), and the leaf print from PTI sweet blush (light pink) pattern pack.
  • The diagonal white flower strip is a precut Doodlebug paper frill in lily white (retired).   It's layered on a plain strip of PTI hibiscus burst.
  • I edged the top and bottom edges of the leaf print paper with Copic marker RV32.
  • Dies are PTI wonderful words: hello, heart-2-heart #12 (leaflet), and heart-2-heart #7 (the smaller of the two flower dies).
  • Flower center is a 1/4" circle from a very old office-supply hand punch. 
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." (448)
