Hello friends! Karla back today with a festive Christmas layout for you! I was trying to decide what I wanted to create and Nicole Wright's beautiful Baubles and Bows 12x12 Paper Pack was jumping out at me... So I ran with it! I printed off some of our Christmas morning pics from 2020 and got started!
One of my favourite things about Wild Whisper paper is that you can foil it with a laminator due to the unique printing properties - so cool! I fussy cut some of the handwritten words from the paper and ran it through my Mini Minc Laminator with some Thermoweb DecoFoil and had a gorgeous foiled title!
I used the awesome Nicole Wright Designs Circlet Stencil to add Vicki Boutin iridescent paste to a white Foundations Paper background, which is nice and sturdy. I cut some of the white snowflake paper in the pack and sprayed it with Salvaged Patina and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide sprays. The Wild Whisper paper is nice and thick with a glossy surface so the sprays worked great on it!
I used a circle punch to punch various sizes of circles from more of the patterned paper and then fussy cut the presents and the tree before foiling them! I even used some watercolor to colour in some of the white spaces!
I used the packaging technique to add some watercolour on the background with the Vicki Boutin Gel Crayons and added a hand drawn line around the page. I finished it off with a few stamped stars from an older Wild Whisper set and some sequins!
