I wanted to play with these thin embossing border folders. Have a bunch of them and never use them, so this card finally uses one of them. It's also a card I created for the Created By Hand challenge with a theme of "Sheltering tree" or the color "Green"

ATS Blog   #38 Monochromatic
Deb Neerman cas-tastic Kraft   recipe - stamp or print image, embossing, masking
Penny's Challenges  #33  use 7 of something (leaves on top)
Dutch Dare  #82 Criss Cross card

I stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with the Versafine Black Onyx, onto white cardstock, embossed with black. Smooshed Distress stamp pads onto craft mat (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles), spritz with water and dragged cardstock through wetness, turning and dragging again. Dry. Emboss with the thin leaf design folder from the Organic Flourishes set #37-19221. Brayer the high points with Perfect Medium and emboss with Rutsic Patina. Layer this onto a bright green cardstock.

Cut a bunch of various leaves in different sizes with my Cricut. Used them to design and color the inside flaps of a cream card that was scored and folded and cut on the angles. The flaps are too small for the card so needed to add pieces to them, and rather than just have a straight seam, I opted to cut the leaf shapes instead. Adhered a dark green cardstock to the leaf cut outs.

Sponged more Distress through the stencil mask onto the inside of the card.

After using the leaves for the inside, I now colored them to use as accents in the "v" opening.

Adhered my quote piece to the front flap. Cut a couple flourish pieces with Spellbinder's Doodle Parts die, dry embossed them and sponged some Forest Moss in the openings.
