Once the background finished cutting, I chose two different patterned papers to place behind some of the butterfly shapes. And I even got my daughter involved, by letting her add the patterned papers behind the shapes. She loves to do her own scrapbook layouts and help mommy anytime she has a chance. She had a great time adding the adhesive around the shapes and placing the paper just right over the butterflies.
After we had the background finished, I added my photo, embellishments and title. I also wanted to add some softness around my photo, so I cut a Polaroid frame from the Silhouette Store, using the new Vellum that Silhouette has available. It cut perfectly and I attached the frame to my photo, using a tiny attacher.
I hope you found some inspiration for creating your own background, and you can also find a lot of pre-made background cuts in the Silhouette Store! Make sure you stop by and check them out or look for shapes to create your own custom background!
