Burgundy with Pink, Rose, and Cream - Hearts and Stripes

Today's card is CASEd from Erin Lincoln's Procrastination Station blog - see the last card in her post here.  I love the look of the patterned stripes with some twine or floss, a repeating sentiment, and repeating embellishments.  Thank you, Erin!   Perfect for Operation Write Home's mid-week challenge to make a valentine-themed card. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink scarlet jewel (burgundy), autumn rose (medium pink), sweet blush (light pink), and vintage cream, with printed papers from the scarlet jewel pattern pack
  • Dies are Spellbinders classic hearts.
  • Embroidery floss is DMC 902.  
  • The sentiment "Love you ~ Always" is computer-printed with burgundy ink using Trajan Pro font.  The dotted lines are also computer-printed (periods in a text box).  
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." (215)
