Pink Hearts and Lines

A nice balance of shapes and lines, lots of white space, some pattern and some solid color.  

Note: the gray is background, not part of the card. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink raspberry fizz, stamper's select white, and leaves pattern from the raspberry fizz pattern pack
  • Dies are Papertrey Ink heart prints (medium and large) and My Favorite Things jumbo squiggle.
  • Corners are rounded with Corner Chomper 1/4". 
  • The lines were drawn by tracing around the dies with a pink Copic 0.3 multiliner.  On another card with the same design, I tried using dashed lines for faux stitching, but it somehow was too cluttered and "busy."  The solid lines, as shown here, look better. 
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." (198)
