Hello, crafty friends! Enza here and today I am bringing you a new layout featuring the gorgeous Pick-Me-Up collection. This week is all about flowers on the blog, so I thought it would be fun to have one giant, layered 3D flower be the focal point of my page.
Before even choosing the cut file I was going to use, I picked the background paper. I love the shade of blue on Paper 15. This one comes in the 12×12 Paper Pad and has a gold grid that makes it just amazing. I enlarged the cut file (ID #26942) to fit the patterned paper and cut the first layer out of white cardstock. What I love about this cut file is that the petals already have three layers on them, making it easy to achieve lots of dimension. For the second layer, I reduced the size of the cut file and cut it out of Paper 06, while for the center of the flower, I went back to white and used one of the papers in the 6×6 Paper Pad.
To bring in more color, I covered the inside of each petal with patterned paper. I shaped the photo to fit the middle of the flower and added tiny chipboard hearts all the way around it.
The title fits right underneath the picture. I love the sentiment and the fact that is a chipboard sticker, thick and sturdy. I then arranged a couple of moths and a smaller sentiment on one side of the photo.
To finish the layout and add even more flowers, I fussy-cut some out and placed them where the main petals meet on the bottom layer of the cut file. A little moth or butterfly was adhered on top of each little cluster for a fun and more colorful touch.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope this has given you a new idea on how to create a layout that is all about flowers.
