First things first, I absolutely love the patterned paper. I can't believe I didn't buy a whole bunch of those sheets when I saw them, as they're beyond beautiful to me: full of dotted hillsides with trees of different sizes, and I think the dots are what makes the scenery so special. Next to the obvious brown and green ones, there are golden accents as well, which gives the paper a fun, elegant glow. Due to bad lighting the card doesn't look exactly like it does in reality where it's a bit brighter and warmer, but there's nothing I can do about the lack of sunshine.
Knowing I would like to show as much of the paper as possible, I decided to use the pattern as my centerpiece. I took one of these tiny card bases, and placed the scenery on an additional piece of brown card board. Since I didn't want the card to look all too empty, I then cut a tiny strip of brown and white paper, which I placed onto the card by using 3D adhesive pads. My idea was to create a little something that would enrich the card without taking away from the those beautiful trees, and I hope it worked out as planned.
Since I didn't want to run the printer for a sentiment, I decided to create it by using the smallest font of golden stickers I had in my stash. I created a simple "Thank you" (no idea why the "L" is made to stand out like this), and lined it with two tiny brown pearls.
I'm not sure where the card will end up, but I can imagine adding it to chocolate bar, or a box of pralines, or even a potted plant to give to someone in gratitude.
