14 Days Of Holidays Giveaway - Day 10 December 14, 2015 00:00 4 Comments


Hello JustNick friends!

Welcome to Day 10 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

Today's design -  Candy Cane Background - is yours for FREE today only!

Lee-Anne here today with a festive layout for the holiday season.

For my layout, I used the Candy Cane Background.  I cut it out on white card stock with my electronic die cutting machine and backed it with some red patterned paper to look like a candy cane. I wanted to define the white more and add more texture so I added some machine stitching using red thread.

As you probably have noticed, I didn't stop there.  There are so many awesome holiday cut files in the Just Nick Shop, that I decided to go further and cut out the Snowflake Background cut file on some vellum. To separate the snowflakes in the background I released the compound path on my Silhouette Cameo, resized the snowflake shapes and then cut them out.

I love the new Holiday Words cut file so I used the word "snow" and "magic" for my title and cut it out on white card stock and placed it in the middle of my layout.

For most of my layouts, I like to add shadows and dimension so when I saw the  Holiday Card Overlay 1 Cut File, I instantly knew that the snowflakes overlay would be perfect to add to the layout.  For this, I backed it with patterned paper and popped it up with foam squares. 

As you can see, the overlay isn't only for cards, it also works great for layouts and project life layouts as well.  Here is a more detailed closeup of my layout.
