To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of Black Shimmer Solid Cardstock as the base of this layout.

Step 2: Cut the smudges vellum paper and the floral mosaic designer paper to measure 4” x 12”. Stack two pieces together and cut in half diagonally. Adhere the segments to a piece of White Solid Cardstock, overlapping each other as shown above.

Step 4: Use the Cloud Frame Punch to punch a piece of White Solid Cardstock. Cut the border at 1-1/4” width. Cut two borders in total.

  1. It’s a shame to cover the stunning background design with photo mats. I plan to use this design WITHOUT photos… as a title page for an album!
