Patty Melt Recipe

Okay, I'm trying to expand my variety of recipe layouts and include some that don't have a lot of food or kitchen images on them.  I grabbed a box of paper out of my Jetmax cubes and found this:

There were two sheets of this large scale printed paper in a package.  As a cardmaker who makes A2 sized cards, I've pulled it out a couple of times and just put it back.  The pattern is just too big for that sized card.

Now, don't ask me what a French themed paper has to do with a patty melt sandwich done on rye bread, but that's what I picked to use!  LOL!  Since the sandwich is grilled and has gooey melted cheese on it (love that!), the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch seemed like a good idea too. 

At this point I just had the recipe and the melty borders and thought, why not add some French words?  I don't speak French, well, I can say "french fries"  LOL!  So, I used an online translator to pick a couple of words and printed them in my cardmaker software.

So, if I've got a drippy goo punch, some words in French and a recipe, why not add the Eiffel tower and some travel labels?  What a combination!  The colors work well, but I'm not too sure about the concept!  LOL!

The Eiffel tower photo was found online and the travel labels came from the clip art in my cardmaker software.

Don't let my funky layout discourage you from giving this recipe a try.  It's a really hearty sandwich that would be great to feed a teenage son!

I think the paper is just perfect! As the creator of the cards, we are always so much more aware of the details. You made it work and I love it!
