Thank You

I needed another thank you card for Operation Write Home's Military Appreciation Month campaign. I used Sketch #1 from the Hero Arts "New Sketch Challenge" (though I'm not entering this card in the challenge, since I didn't use any Hero Arts stamps).

I embossed some green cardstock with the "Dot Swirl" embossing folder from this set. I cut it to size, and cut a piece of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye "Chevron" 6x6" pad for the bottom. I die cut the top edge of the patterned paper with this Simon Says Stamp die. I adhered both pieces to brown cardstock, cut to a standard A2 card size, overlapping the embossed cardstock with the patterned paper.

I used this Poppystamps die for the sprigs on either side of the greeting, cutting them out of dark green cardstock. I stamped the greeting (using Hero Arts Unicorn ink) with this stamp onto the same brown cardstock I used for the mat. After die cutting the greeting with a Spellbinders Classic Circles die, I marked where it would go on the card, and glued down my sprigs so they would be partially behind it. Finally, I glued the greeting over the sprigs, and mounted the card front onto an A2 card base.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday "Die Crazy"
Operation Write Home's May ODBD "Embossing"
