Hello Everyone! Sara with you today creating with the beautiful, new Leaf Edge Cut File
I started by cutting the file extra big out of smooth white cardstock. I wanted to use the cut file as the main embellishment on my layout. By sizing it large, and tucking my photo into the leaves,I accomplished my design goal. I decided to pair the cut file and picture with Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Midnight collection, and then I went to work making the cut file my own- my favorite part of the process!
I used Distress Oxide ink and Distress Glaze to give my cut file a smooth, ombre look and then backed each leaf with a different patterned paper. I adhered the leaves straight to the page and then used dimensional foam behind the leaves to pop them up.
I wanted to add some embellishments to my cut file to give it some sparkler/shine, and tiny details. I decided on some clusters of sequins, and then I added die cuts, phrase stickers, and some butterflies to round out my clusters and make the page pop! I love how these details make the cut file a statement piece on the layout while not taking over or overwhelming my photo! I loved using the die cut words in the collection to mix and match until I had the perfect title.

Have A Lovely Day!
