Hello Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn here today to share with you a page featuring the XO 2 Background file.  This design is a fun and impactful piece to add to your page.  I love that the X's and O's are varied in size throughout the design, and I'm smitten with the brush script style letters that are used.

I sized my design down to fill only a portion of my 12x12 page.  I cut it first out of white cardstock, then a second time from a bright and bold pink cardstock, that coordinated well with my photos. I layered the white cut atop of the pink, slightly offsetting them, to create a fun shadowed effect and pop of color.  The cut design makes even more of a statement when layered over a red ombre paper.

I really wanted the cut file to shine on my page, so I kept the remainder of my design and embellishments to a minimum.  I love the impact this design gives to my page, while still complimenting my pictures, in both theme and colors.

At first glance, this cut file might read as a themed or Valentine design, but as you can see here, it's quite versatile.  I hope you'll share with us how you're using it!
