Do you mean it is card with a scene printed on it? Have you also got other cards with objects on them that could be cut out and built up into a picture? Or have you got several cards with the same scene to combine into one picture by decoupage?

hello Ann,
Sorry to take so long to answer you, and thank you very much I purchased some very nice decoupage sheets from a company named Moonstone. on line, and accompanying three sheets were the beautiful scenes and also a patterned one I assumed at first they were like backing paper ,but the scenic ones which are just like normal 7x5 card but printed in such a way if folded to make a card the scene is all wrong and no way would it look right with anything attached, i.e decoupage pieces. I hope you can understand all this, all I can think is maybe make a picture instead of f card. :-S

I think I know what you mean and have seen similar in other sets. All I have done is use whatever I can from the card. I.e cut out anything that can be stuck on other card blanks as toppers, sometimes I have been able to cut the card down to make a smaller card using part of the picture.
