Hello Everyone! Melly on the blog with you today! I am crazy excited to be guest designing for CUT to YOU! My first layout is using the Autumn Leaf Cut file. I paired with some of my favorite autumn pictures.
I usually cut my files on a heavy white cardstock, I like using white that way if I decide to blend ink on it, or use some Nuvo, I have a blank slate. I have used colored cardstock, and it looks awesome as well. With this one I went with the white and added some sparkle.
I used a 6×6 paper pad from Echo Park, and backed most of this file. However I left a few spaces and created lovely shakers in them. Using some acetate, 1/8 inch foam strips, beautiful fall sequins, and baking those pockets with gold vellum!
I enjoy mixing different papers to back my cut file. In this instance the fall papers, gold vellum, and white vellum. I love the look you get.
To finish off my cut file, I used som Nuvo Glitter drops, Gold Coast, and went over white. To put this layout together, I pulled out a mixed media background I have created previous, stitched around the board, added my completely dry cut file and stated layering up. I used some pre cut black photo strips and layered my photos. Added some leaves, wood veneer pumpkins, flair, word cutouts, my beautiful acrylic Title, and a few more sequins!
See you soon for my next layout! Happy Crafting!
