# Branches # Dimensional Leaves

Homeward Bound


Hello! Jodi here today to share another fun way to use the Cheery Lynn Designs frame dies on a 12x12 layout.
The Fathers Day Homeward Bound Frame Die perfectly compliments the background in the photo of my son.
I cut the top half of the die (goose/sun portion) from gold pattern paper, then trimmed the edges by hand to place at the top of my photo. I cut the bottom half of the die (reeds/cattails portion) three times from green pattern paper, giving me three pieces to create the border at the bottom of the photo.
I colored in the cattails with a marker, then added some Distress Stickles to give them a bit of texture. I’ve added clusters of Small Leaves #2, Pine Branches, and Pair of Ferns here and there, adding a couple of the smaller Darling Daisies for color.
The Celtic Heart is the ideal place to house my title. To the left of the photo, I added a Circle Lace Mega Reflections Boutique Doily. The blue layer and brown photo matte were cut using the Mini Pearl Rectangle Reflections Mega Die set.
