I wanted a red monochromatic layout to emphasise the 'love' from the photos of my son with his new baby sister.

I welded hearts in Design Studio using several cartridges, to make 'lace cardstock' and placed 3D foam underneath it to pop it up from the base cardstock (see close-up photo). 

I also cut out lettering from cardstock and debossed it.  I placed the letters on top of the layout, turned it over and used an embossing tool to go around the edges.  So, part of the title (Big love, Big hugs), is very subtle across the left-hand side of the layout (see close-up photo).  I popped the remaining part of the title (Big brother), onto 3D foam on the right-hand side of the layout.

This layout is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge 'LOVE' theme and is also linked to Passionately Artistic.

Big love, Big hugs, Big brother
