I started with white cardstock and pink and gold acrylic paint. I wanted to keep the cut file hearts white, so I painted behind each one in pink gold. When I adhered my photos and hearts I used minimal adhesive behind the photos so that the hearts looked like they were floating.
I kept all my embellishment around each photo to one area, which enabled each cut file to shine.
This layout has minimal patterned paper, and I love how it turned out.
Here is the cut file set.
Thanks so much for looking!
