Triangles in Orange and Brown

My card today is for the August "masculine card" challenge sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs (thank you, ODBD!) to benefit Operation Write Home.  The triangles in autumn colors make a strong, simple effect. 

Card details:
  •  Card stock is Papertrey Ink classic kraft, orange zest (orange), terra cotta tile (deep rusty orange, not so red in real life), dark chocolate (brown), and rustic cream.
  • The triangles are cut with Papertrey Ink heart-2-heart #5 die.  This die cuts four triangles at once, and they are beautifully aligned, so it's easy to use the negative cut as a frame.  (For this card, I cut with the die twice to make eight triangles.)
  • My sentiment "Thinking of you" is computer-printed in orange ink with brown outline, using Papyrus font (small caps).  The double triangle shapes above and below the sentiment are also computer-printed in Webdings font, typing "8 7" on the keyboard.
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." (189)
