Evergreen Tree

This is another quick and simple card that I made for today's 365 Cards final flashback challenge. Today's "Flashback Saturday" is Day 333: the 3 G's-green, glitter and grosgrain.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4," but the fold is at the top of the card, rather than on the side like usual. I made it out of a dark green cardstock, then trimmed a piece of white paper 1/4" smaller and adhered it on the card base. I took another piece of the same dark green cardstock and cut it 1/4" smaller than the white paper. I then embossed it with the Distress Stripes embossing folder. I tied a piece of white grosgrain ribbon around the card. I stamped my evergreen tree image onto a piece of white cardstock. The stamp is by Posh Impressions and I used pearlescent ivy ink by Tsukineko. I then put some star dust Stickles on the tree for some glitter effect.
