Dreams are for chasing | Raechelle Bellus

Hello scrappy Cut to You friends! Raechelle here sharing a layout featuring the Butterfly Cluster Cut ‘n Stitch cut file

To create this layout I first cut the file on a sheet of 12×12 white cardstock, first adjusting the image placement to work with my photo. I then cut the butterflies a second time, same size, but this time without the stitching holes.

The cut file was not removed from the base paper, I instead placed the patterned papers on the back side of the base paper and adhered them.

Next, I completed the stitching using three strands of floss, and then adhered the second cut file directly on top of the base, only adhering the bodies of the butterflies so the wings have some dimension.

To finsh it off, I then cut some “bodies” from the same pp that I backed the photo with for visual interest.

Adding some random fussy cut paper strips to add a little more whimsy and movement.
