This card is 4 1/4"x5 1/2." I used white cardstock for the base of the card. I then cut a piece of yellow cardstock 1/8" smaller than the card base. I embossed it using the Birds & Swirls embossing folder. The tree is cut from Straight From the Nest at 3." I cut two ovals from George and Basic Shapes. The blue one is cut at 4 1/2" and the white one is cut at 4 1/4." I adhered the tree onto the ovals, then added the sentiment. I used aloe vera ink by Tsukineko for the sentiment. I cut two rectangles, one from blue and one from white. The blue one is cut at 3 7/8"x2" and the white one is cut at 3 5/8"x 1 3/4." I wrapped them with a green ribbon, then tied another piece of it in a bow and attached it to the wrapped piece. I adhered it to the card base, then attached my ovals. I finished it off with some green bling on the ribbon.

I made this for the following:
