Red Thanks Card with Yellow Stars

A very bright card in red and yellow.

My card stock is Papertrey Ink pure poppy (red card base and button), harvest gold (medium yellow stars), lemon tart (light yellow sentiment panel), and summer sunrise (yellow-orange layered star focal point). The sentiment "Thanks" is computer-printed in Hobo Std Medium font (bold, expanded spacing).

I cut the button and stars with PaperTrey Ink dies - Buttoned Up #1 and Seeing Stars. Texture added with Cuttlebug candy cane stripes embossing folder. And finished with a bit of yellow embroidery floss and some red lines (Sanford Uni-ball gel impact red pen).

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." (114)
