Green Dots and Star - Thank You

Green dots with gold-and-cream twine and a star.  Curves and angles.  The star is popped up with foam tape.  The overall effect is simple and rather elegant. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink ripe avocado (dark green card base), simply chartreuse (medium green star), and rustic cream, with polka dot paper from the Pretty Pastels 8x8 pad.   
  • Dies are Papertrey Ink tiny tags (star tag), double ended banner, and edgers #1.
  • The twine is gold shimmer from The Twinery.  Where their usual twines have a white base, the two new shimmer twines (gold and platinum) have more of a cream/ natural base, very nice with these paper colors. 
  • The sentiment "Thank you" is computer-printed with green ink in American Typewriter font (bold, expanded 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." (232)
