Three Greens with Dots

This card has three green colors - light, medium, and dark - and also three different types of dots - patterned paper, embossing, and glued-on quarter-inch punched dots.   I like the variety of shapes and textures on a very simple "medallion band" layout. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink spring moss (light green), simply chartreuse (medium green), ripe avocado (dark green), vintage cream, and the bitty dot pattern from simply chartreuse pattern pack.  
  • Dies are My Favorite Things layered label die set (3 die shapes).   
  • The two green dots to right and left of sentiment are punched with an old 1/4" hole punch. 
  • Embossing folder is Darice dot point, from my local craft store.
  • Sentiment "Thinking of you today" is computer-printed in green ink using Wide Latin font.
