To keep the page light and soft, I decided to back only some of the triangles with different patterned papers. The idea was to create an horizontal design. I also added some stitching, alternating gold and white embroidery floss for extra texture. The acrylic stars are part of Ashley's Tinsel Town collection.
I wanted to create more separation between the picture and the background, so I printed a copy of the same photo in black and white and placed it behind the one in color.
Next, the little presents. I cut them out of white cardstock and backed them with more papers from the collection. As I thought they were blending too much with the background, I outlined the image to create a little border. Some sequins and a few rub-ons from the collection completed the layout.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my process. Visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store for these and many more inspiring cut files.
