Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. We are already after the 3rd Sunday of Advent, and during advent-time we like to organise some special activities, like going to Christmas concerts, watching the Nutcracker ballett, visiting Christmas markets, drinking some mulled wine, eating chimney cake… But this year is different, all of the above have been cancelled… 😦 So I revisit those memories in my scraproom.
I chose the wonderful Holly Background cut file as a base of my layout. I cut it from white cardstock and started to back it with some patterned papers of the Muérdago collection of Mintopía.
When I was ready with the backing of the Holly Background cut file, I sprinkled some watercolours on a white cardstock.
When it was dry, I glued the cut file on the white background, and as I found it was too pale, I cut the edges and added a darker border.
Then I cut some poinsettias with my Sizzix, and added them to the cut file.
I finally added the title and some gold leaf and pine stickers to the flowers.
I hope you are all going to have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones, and will have some time for creating too! For having great basics to start, visit the CUT to YOU shop for some beautiful Christmas cut files! 😉
