I started by sizing the background file to approximately 8.4 x 8.1 inches, then I cut it two times from white cardstock. I planned to use one of the cuts as a whole, then place the other cut file in two places on my mixed media background.
I backed the butterflies with a few patterned papers from the same collection, then adhered the full background cut with foam tape so I could slip my photo in behind the butterflies.
The second cut was backed with the same papers, then I cut the file into two pieces so I could place it in two spots on my layout.
I adore these butterflies! You can count on seeing this cut file as a regular in my scrapbook pages. Thanks for stopping by The Cut Shoppe blog today!
