Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas cling stamp set along with the Toile Tidings designer series paper to make a nostalgic Christmas Card. Here is my card:
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the sketch we are using:
I used the second largest circle in the Layering Circles dies to cut a circle in a panel of Garden Green card stock and then ran it through the Subtle embossing folder. I used the largest scalloped circle in the Layering Circles dies to cut a scalloped circle from Real Red card stock. I cut a circle in the middle of the scalloped circle with the second largest circle die to create a scalloped frame. I adhered the frame to the embossed panel with liquid glue. I added a strip of the striped Toile Tidings DSP to the card front and added a length of the Garden Green ribbon on top, securing it on the back.
I stamped the double banner sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas in Garden Green on a panel of Very Vanilla and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals. I tied another strip of the ribbon in a knot and adhered it to the panel with glue dots.
I cut a circle of the countryside Toile Tidings DSP with the largest circle of the Layering circles dies and attached it to a Thick Very Vanilla Card base with liquid glue. I was careful to select a portion that had an interesting scene, such as this with the children playing in front of the barn. I then adhered the embossed Garden Green panel to the card base with dimensionals, so that the little scene would show through behind the frame. I finished off the card front with 3 red glitter enamel dots.
On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas stamp set using Garden Green ink on a panel of Very Vanilla. I added a strip of the countryside Toile Tidings DSP to the bottom of the panel and stamped the flourish in Real Red ink under the sentiment. I added a Garden Green mat and adhered it to the inside of the card. I adhered a panel of the countryside Toile Tidings DSP to the flap of a Very Vanilla medium envelope with liquid glue and trimmed it with paper snips.
The nostalgic images of the countryside Toile Tidings DSP bring back memories of winter fun and Christmases past. They are sure to make this Christmas Merry and Bright!
