Basic Card Layout # 53

Card Base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Rectangle Layer:  2 1/4" x 5"

Square Layer:  2 3/4" x 3 1/4"

This is a great basic card layout for leftover scraps from another project.  I used the bough punch, stampin' blends and embellishments to give added interest to the layout and used ONLY scraps to create the card.
