Here is my 'shoebox' card that I made for this year's Appleby Magna.
I used a square card blank, coloured card and white card. the whit card was embossed on the top and bottom and straight line embossed along the centre. Message was stamped on white card and cut with nesties and matted onto coloured card cut with scalloped circle nestie.. Ribbon was added and gems.
Simple card but very effective and can be done in many colours.
Thanks for reading
