Turquoise Stars with Aqua and Brown

This card started with a piece of brown card stock, scrap from another project.  I added the turquoise stars, then some lines and a sentiment.   Just a simple and cheerful note card.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink aqua mist (card base), dark chocolate (brown), and Hawaiian shores (turquoise stars).
  • The die is from the Papertrey Ink super stars border die set. 
  • The lines and sentiment are computer-printed with PowerPoint in brown and turquoise ink.
  • The brown lines are 2 points wide (line weight), and the turquoise are 3 point.  Because the brown lines have more contrast, the turquoise needed more width to look balanced.  
  • The sentiment "Hello" is in Wide Latin font.  The "H" is a larger font size to stand out more, and the "ello" has expanded character spacing.
