Card of the Week: Let the Pattern Shine Through

The patterned paper that I used on this card was interesting to work with.
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Scenic Route; Cardstock: Bazzill; Corner Rounder: EK Success; Sentiment Font: Elephant; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, 3D Foam Squares

Why?

Well, because the pattern on this paper is so large.

Any embellishments that I tried to layer on top (which I love to do!) covered too much of the lovely pattern and took away from it considerably.

I tried to add floral embellishments and die cuts, but both covered up too many of the blue flowers and the prettiness of this paper was lost.

So I decided to keep it simple and let the pattern shine through.

By simply mounting the patterned paper on coordinating cardstock, rounding the corners and adding a sentiment, the beauty of the paper is left for the person receiving this card to enjoy.

Isn't it lovely?
