Acacia tree Clean and Simple Card

I don’t remember where I got this free GSD file for the tree, but it is awesome!  It seemed to be just right for this Clean and Simple (FTL 180) card. I embossed it with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder and then lightly swiped a yellow pigment ink pad across the leafy parts.

The black and yellow cardstock is from a designer pad by Teresa Collins called Carolina Breeze.  It also contains several patterns containing gray. Since gray and yellow are really in right now I will probably make several other cards from this group as well.

The label and the bird are Silhouette files.  It is super fun to cut out a bird that is only 1/2″ in size!

The yellow epoxy sticker in the corner was so old it wasn’t sticking anymore, so I just added a drop of Glossy Accents.  Problem solved, sticker is stuck!
