My 8 x 4 Slimline card was inspired by the Sketch at Fusion Card Challenge this week.  The large scale pattern of this piece of paper dictated the size of the card, it's from the Artfully Composed DSP, #157750.    

* The 4 x 3 layer at the top of the card is embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder on Sahara Sand to match the card base.  I added Sahara Sand ink with a blending brush for subtle interest.  The Pale Papaya background script of this DSP is enhanced with the addition of a narrow strip of Pale Papaya cardstock.  

*  The 3 x 6 DSP layer us wrapped with Crumb Cake Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack, #155475 with a Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon bow, #155672.

*  The die cut leaf from the Tropical Layers Dies, #157760 is lightly coloured with Mint Macaron Ink & Just Jade ink on Basic White using a Blending Brush for a slight colour variation.   The sentiment is stamped with Just Jade and fussy cut out.

Since this card was too large for the Stampin' Up!® Slimline Envelopes, #157981, I created one using the Canadian Standard #10 envelopes as a guide.
