Missing You

Hi everyone! Today I've another clean and simple card I made for Operation Write Home to share.  I usually make a couple dozen of one card for them so I try to keep them quick and easy.

The image used on today's card is from the Garden Silhouettes stamp set and the sentiment is from the For Every Occasion stamp set.  To add some texture I embossed the Pure Poppy cardstock using the Victoria Embossing Folder.  To embellish the card I added some Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon and a small piece of matching ribbon with a knot.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

  • Stamps: Garden Silhouettes (Stampin' Up) and For Every Occasion (CTMH)
  • Paper: True Black, Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Splendor Stripe Patterned Paper (Bo-Bunny)
  • Ink: Real Red (Stampin' Up) and Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Other: Victoria Embossing Folder, Red Grosgrain Ribbon and Glue Dots
