The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.

I read that Operation Write Home was low on Missing You cards to send to our deployed troops. I decided to make some yesterday.
This image is a rubber stamp from Stampabilities, stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink. I embossed the green background paper with a Woodgrain embossing folder from The Paper Studio, then distressed it with Rich Cocoa Memento ink. The paper tended to tear a bit because the embossing was so deep.
On this card, I mounted the background paper onto the brown layer of cardstock before embossing. I also distressed this with some Rich Cocoa Memento ink. This sentiment is a clear stamp from my stash of stamps.
