It is time for a new free cut file! YAY!!!
Our friends at the Cut Shoppe have created the Pretty Petals cut file just in time for Spring. The florals in this design are fun, and so easy to combine to document your memories, at any time or season of the year.
I took advantage of the floral designs in the cut file to create a cascade of flowers in my layout that celebrates Sister Love.
Using the Silhouette Software, the floral motifs were sized to be at the largest 2.5 in. Once the florals and the leaf pair were sized, a few extra leaves from the Fall Faves cut file were also added to the file, and all cut from white textured cardstock.
All the flowers were backed using papers from Pink Paislee’s Pick Me Up collection, however not the entire cut out was glued to the paper. Instead glue was just added to the center of the cut out, so that the petals of the flowers will lift, thus creating movement in the page.
The two flower design were backed with the same papers, so that they could be evenly spread on the page.
To back the leaves, a combination of papers from the Pick Me Up and Turn The Page collections were used – all leaves were backed with a diferent shade of green paper-. The leaves cut outs wre glued fully to the paper, unlike the flower ones.
Before adding the flowers to the paper, a bit of mixed media was added using some white acrylic paint, and Jane Davenport’s Mermaid markers. Once the background was dried, the picture was propped on some fun foam.
The flowers were then glued to the page to form a cascade (half moon) around the picture. Foam adhesive and strong glue were used so that there is dimension and movement in the page. Since there is so much detail added to the page, just a few extra embellishments were necessary. These chipboard pieces, sequins and stickers all come from Paige Evans’ Pick Me Up collection.
To complete this page, a title was created using a combination of chipboard stickersm and small alpha stickers wre used. A few drops of gold ink, and journal lines complete this page.
The floral design and color in this page are the perfect way to celebrate sister love at its best. Now it is your turn to put the cut file to work in a project of your own. Stop by Scrapbook Nerd to get a free download of the file.
