Purples with Lace Panel

A sweet, lacy love card, with nice textures and colors. 

Card details:
  •  Card stock is Papertrey Ink plum pudding (left side), lavender moon (right side), and rustic white (lace panel).
  • The lace is cut with the Memory Box charlotte border die.
  • The ribbon is 3/8" satin.  The embroidery floss is DMC 3041. 
    Edited May 5, 2013 to add:  DMC 3041 has a slight brownish tinge and looks very brown in some lights (bright sunlight, for example).  I found Anchor brand #872 is a better color - almost the same as DMC 3041, but without the brown.
  • The sentiment "Love you, miss you" is computer-printed in purple ink with Edwardian script ITC font, expanded character spacing. 
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." (200)
