Cards featuring March cut files March 23, 2016 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today. 

In my little part of the world, the weather is beginning to warm and the trees are starting to bloom. That fact has me itching to infuse everything floral and springy into my crafting projects.  Lucky for me, Nicole has released lots of fun and pretty cut files this month that fulfill these requirements. 

I used two of the recent March released cut files to put together this fun and pretty duo of cards.

The basic flowers were just asking to be layered. I sized down the file to fit within the constraints of my standard sized card front.  Cutting the flowers from a variety of colors and patterns and adjusting their size to layer atop one another, creates a fun and textural design.  Sequins, buttons and enamel buttons make perfect flower centers when the cut file is sized down like this.

My next card uses a mini version of the Floral Burst Background.  I cut three identical cuts of this file out of white cardstock and layered them atop of one another to give my diecut piece more substance and dimension.  Layering a variety of pretty patterned papers behind the cut file, makes the petals shine and the flower come alive.

Be sure to stop by the blog again on Saturday for some more great spring inspired designs that will be loaded to the store.  I'm pretty certain, you're going to love them!
