I really love the new Floral Frame cut file from The Cut Shoppe. But I really wanted to figure out a different way to use it...and here's why: a few months ago, the Flutterby cut file was released. And for obvious reasons, it was a favorite among the design team. I think everyone ended up using it. And while all of our designs definitely looked different, there wasn't a ton of variety in how we used it. So when I saw the Floral Frame, I thought, this is definitely going to be a favorite...and sure enough it has been. But I wanted to show you how it could be used in a different way!
I started by cutting the cut file out on my Cricut sized as 11.5" wide on textured white cardstock. Then before backing anything, I cut apart all of the flowers from each other. I tried to salvage as many flowers as possible, and think I only tossed two in the process.
Then I picked out my color scheme. I have been really loving yellow lately, so I wanted to make sure that was the main color on my page. I added in some navy and a touch of teal.
I backed all of my flowers, loosely, not even attaching the entire white outline to the patterned paper. This not only made the process faster, but it also added a little more dimension to my page. Then I arranged my flowers in a diagonal pattern down my page.
After that, it was just a matter of some simple embellishing, some journaling and some black and gold splatters!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
