Day 10 Of The 14 Days of Holiday Giveaway

Hello friends! So glad you stopped by because it's Day 10 of the 14 Days of Holidays Giveaway and each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 there is one FREE cut file to download for that weekday only until midnight CST.  For Day 10, I am sharing a layout on the Just Nick Digital Cut Files blog using the fabulous Candy Cane Background.

When I saw this cut file I knew immediately what I wanted to create with it.  I wanted to create something festive and also something winter themed of these cuties who melt my heart.

First I cut out the cut file on white card stock and machine stitched around the white card stock background with red thread to make it really pop.  After that was completed,  I took a piece of red patterned paper and backed the design.  I used the Carta Bella All Bundled Up Collection for this project.

I love vellum and I wanted some snowflakes on my layout so I chose the Snowflake Background, cut it out on a sheet of vellum with my Silhouette Cameo,  and then hand cut some snowflakes apart so I could use them on several projects.  This is another way to use the cut files and keep some for another project.  I tucked the snowflakes here and there on my layout and added some stickers and sequins to the middle of each one.

For my title "Snow Magic", I used the words "snow" and "magic" from the Holiday Words cut file and cut them on white card stock and  placed them on the layout as shown.

To give more dimension to the layout, I cut out the snowflake overlay from the Holiday Card Overlay 1 cut file on some white card stock and popped them up with foam squares to add some shadows.  Adding some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons also adds some more interest.

Stickers were added to my design here and there and also some wood veneer trees.  Again, I added some sequins for more interest.

Now for the good news.  The Candy Cane Background is FREE in the Just Nick Store for today, December 14, 2015 only until midnight CST.  Use the code CANEFREE to grab it in the store today.  All the cut files I used on my layout are also available to purchase in the Just Nick Digital Cut Files Store.
