Cream with Brown and Yellow Dots

For this card, I started with three colors of card stock - cream, brown, and yellow. I created the sentiment, then the coordinating polka dot paper. A few stripes to balance out the dots, and I was done. Except for cleaning up debris from many things I tried that didn't work!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Neenah classic cream and PaperTrey Ink dark chocolate (brown) and summer sunrise (yellow-orange).
  • Sentiment "Thank you" is computer-printed in Hobo Std font (outlined) with brown and yellow-orange ink. I adjusted the spacing and font sizes. The T and K are in a separate text box from the other letters. The dots are periods (...).
  • Patterned paper is the same periods (...) with spacing adjusted to make a polka-dot pattern.
  • The fiber is brown embroidery floss.
