Here are the two layouts I created:
Next I placed the wreath cut file on sheet of white cardstock and simply placed the cut file on top of it. Using a spatula I started applying the mousse over the cut file. I didn't adhere the cut file beforehand, because as soon as the first bit of mousse is applied the cut file is stuck to the page and won't move any more.
I started at the top of the cut file and worked my way down. The more mousse you apply the more depth you'll get. What I like about it is that it stays in the shape it has been applied.
As soon as the cut file was completely covered in mousse I removed it from my cardstock background (before the mousse had dried). This is how it looked:

Now I started to build the rest of my page. I chose a dark background cardstock for the gold wreath cut file and used just a little bit of adhesive to glue it to the cardstock as I didn't want to flatten the wreath:
After adding a bit of machine stitching I wrote a little bit of text with a white marker and also used the white marker to draw a line along the edges of the journaling card and my layout. Last but not least I added a few drops of white paint:
I also used the negative of the wreath cut file to create a layout. I'll quickly show you the layout and a few close-ups of this page as well. The photos are of my daughter who went to Iceland with her friends last year:
