Merry Christmas, Foxy Friends! Don't you just love the Christmas season? I especially love scrapping Christmas photos, and Bramble Fox has really outdone themselves with their Christmas collection this year! I had some beautiful photos of a friend and her kids to scrap, and the mint Wonderful set was perfect with the colors in the pictures. This set comes with two gorgeous script words and a shiny mirror-finished star. I also used a couple of Fox Cut stencils, which I'll describe below. (Please note that I scrap 8 x 8, so the products look larger on my layouts.)
I started out with a free Paper Issues cut file that I thought resembled Christmas balls, and backed them with various patterned papers from the Vintage North Pole collection by Simple Stories . I lightly traced the cut file in the center of my page so I could do my background work. I mixed some Time Holtz Distress Ink and some watercolors to create the colors I wanted to use behind the cut file. I needed a little red in the left corner to balance the red on the right, so I added a red heart Perspextive to one of the circles.
I used the very versatile Fox Cut #22, which can be used as stars or flowers or fireworks, or in this case, snowflakes. I used a silvery-white embossing powder to give them a frosty look.
I love the holly from Fox Cut #25. I use a paintbrush and watercolors for the leaves and a dabber for the berries and brown twigs. There are so many configurations of these leaves you can make from this stencil.
