I had the Countryside Corners Bundle on my craft desk, so I chose the project in the photo above for my inspiration. As you can see, it is a gift bag, but I went with a card instead.
I started by embossing a card-sized panel of Boho Blue card stock with the pretty Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder and adhered it to the white card base. I decided to frame my art panel instead of placing the patterned paper behind it, so I heat embossed the single Countryside Corners stamp in white on Night of Navy card stock and used the second and third largest of the Countryside Corners Dies to crop the frame and adhered it flat to the embossed card front.
The art panel was cropped with the fourth largest of the Countryside Corners dies to fit within the frame. I stamped the small flower spray in the corners using images from the Lasting Joy stamp set in Misty Moonlight and Crumb Cake ink. The designs in this set coordinate with the Countryside Blossoms embossing folder. The larger flowers and leaves were stamped in Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake ink respectively and then fussy cut. I've used small banners cropped from Pecan Pie card stock instead of the ribbon to create the tails at the bottom. The art panel was popped up in the centre of the frame with Dimensionals and the flowers and leaves positioned in the corners. The greeting from the Wonderful Thoughts set is stamped in Night of Navy ink and cropped with the coordinating die and popped up in the centre. To finish, I added Irridescent Pastel Gems to the large flowers and a tiny Brushed Brass Butterfly.
For the inside, I have a Boho Blue mat for the writing panel. The flower spray was stamped in the top corner and I added a strip of the cute little flower border from the Countryside Inn DSP at the bottom. I had 2 fussy cut flowers left and popped them into the border.
