14 Days of Giveaways | Day 12 | Mari Clarke December 12, 2017 07:00

Welcome to Day 12 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

The free file for today is the Snowflake Background cut file!


This cut file is so versatile for holiday or winter themed projects!  I created this 12x12 layout using the file.

I sized the cut file so that it would be a focal point behind my 4x6 photo that was printed in portrait/black and white. I cut the Snowflake Background cut file from some white textured cardstock.  I sewed around the outside edge of each circle with my sewing machine using white thread.



I popped the cut file up on some foam adhesive so that it would add some extra dimension to that part of the layout.  I matted my photos using some white cardstock and two different patterned papers.  All of the patterned paper I used is from the Snow Fun collection from Carta Bella.  The title was created using the Word 4 cut file.  I cut the word Smile from some white cardstock and backed it with patterned papers that complement the photo mat. The title is also popped up on foam adhesive.



I sewed around the perimeter of the Smile cut file and around the outer edge of the layout.  I added a hidden journaling piece on a tag to the back of the layout. The snowflake patterned paper is framed in with a navy and white dot pattened paper around the outer edge of the layout.  The embellishments I added include some chipboard pieces and brads from Snow Fun, as well as some silver glitter pieces from Heidi Swapp and my stash.
