This is a little out of style for me, but I had an idea in mind that went a different direction. More shimmery in person.
Cut the strips various widths and glue to the base layer of the same color. Emboss the leafy branch folder and then turn the folder upside down and reemboss, giving the pattern some variation. Then I spritzed the card with a mixture of Bundled Sage Distress Ink refill and Green Patina Perfect Pearls Powder. Let that dry and spritz it again with Slate Glimmer mist. Wipe that off before it dries.
