Hearts Print with Banner - Before and After

A card with some red, white, and blue Love for Operation Write Home's June banners challenge.  With our OWH August 1 deadline coming soon, I wanted to use up the rest of this hearts print and those sweet tiny words - "Be mine, Forever and always, You make me happy" and more.

So I adapted the layout from an earlier card (shown below) while using most of the same materials.  Both cards are nice, but I think the "after" card (above) is more vibrant with the wide red banner and lively embossing pattern.

Edited July 4, 2015 to add:  See this post for another "after" version. 

Card details:
  • See this post for materials used on both cards.
  • The only new supplies on the "after" are - Added some red embroidery floss (DMC 347) and changed embossing folder to Sixxix retro cirque (retiring.)
  • On the "after" card, I forgot to edge the hearts print with B39 Copic marker like the "before"card.  It looks better with the edging (below.)
Both cards were 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." (387)
