My two colors were red and several shades of green. For the metallic I used ink instead of paper. I applied Encore Metallic ink direct to paper for the love die cut and I edged with leaves with the same ink. I embossed the woodgrain background and applied shades of green ink direct to paper. Tons of die cuts and glueing and one stamping and it's done. Not difficult but a bit time consuming because of all the die cuts.
This card is being donated to W.H.E.A.T. which is an organization that sends care packages to our military throughout the world. As part of the packages they includes blank cards for the soldiers to send home to loved ones. Birthdays and anniversaries are the most requested, so I hope my generic "sending love" can work for either. This was the August 2020 Cards for a Cause recipient, so if you would like more information on this organization you can find it here: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/f...e-t634632.html
Congratulations again Jacqueline. I hope you enjoy your week as Featured Stamper and thank you for all the beautiful inspiration.

Gorgeous card Debbie and such a labor of love too! I am thrilled you used the direct to ink method to get the wonderful wood grain look on your background. I know Jacqueline will love that you made a gorgeous wreath and sentiment die on your gorgeous card. Thank you for sharing this organization with us too! ~Karen.
