Good grief I hear you cry! A standard card! I haven't made a bog-standard for yonks- I'm so into shaped cards that I wanted to make an ordinary card just to see if I still could, and I have to say that I'm chuffed with this card- it has a country feel to it. I used freebie papers from a Creative Cardmaking past issue (can't remember which one, but the papers are a Nit-Wits Collection) and a simple layout. The image, cut from Gemstones cardstock, was adhered to a scalloped, embossed oval then adhered to the front of the card with foam pads. A red gingham bow (love it!)punched border and a Wild Orchid Crafts floral arrangement adorn the card. 'Count your blessings' was cut from more Gemstones cardstock shadowed with white, then adhered to the bottom of the card, under the gingham ribbon, with foam pads.
The inside of the card was decorated with a punched border and a scalloped oval on a patterned paper panel to hold a greeting/stamped sentiment.
