Heart, House, and Sun - Aqua with Kraft and Yellow

This card makes me smile!  I hope it will do the same for one of our deployed troops sending it, and for a loved one at home receiving it.  Very colorful and crisp in real life.

The house and tree create a homey little scene, reinforced as the focal point by the "house-colored" straight and squiggly borders above and below. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) kraft, aqua mist (light aqua), Hawaiian shores (medium aqua), pure poppy (red), simply chartreuse (green), dark chocolate (brown), orange zest, and the stripes print from PTI lemon tart (yellow) pattern pack.
  • Dies are My Favorite Things jumbo squiggle, PTI take three, smallest die from PTI polka dot parade #2, and Avery Elle icon fill-in-the-blank (heart, house, and asterisk/sun).  
  • The tree trunk is cut with scissors. 
  • Embossing folder is Paper Studio woodgrain.
  • Sentiment "Love you, miss you" is computer printed in brown ink with Prestige Elite Standard Bold font (using a smaller font size for the spaces between the words).
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." (373)
