A Toile Christmas

Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and it’s going to be a small celebration with just my sister, my husband and me.  But we’re grateful we’re healthy and together.  This weekend I’m in Christmas card making mode and one of the cards I’m going to duplicate is the card I created based on this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used the Toile Christmas stamp set and Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I also used the Woodland embossing folder and the Toile Tidings Designer Series paper.  The green tag behind the cardinal I die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.  The ribbon is 3/8″ Real Red Sheer ribbon. The cardinal is stamped with Real Red ink.  Difficult to see but I also colored the cardinal with Clear Wink of Stella.  The sprig and greeting I stamped with Garden Green.

I also used the Sprig punch to die cut gold foil sprigs and red basic rhinestones to embellish the berries.

A Toile Christmas Cardinal

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Shaded Spruce.  When I first saw these colors I immediately thought Christmas and took the opportunity to finally use my new Toile Christmas Bundle.  I had to get this bundle because of the cardinal stamp and die.  I love cardinals and actually see them quite often in my backyard.  They are beautiful birds with their bight red feathers.

I knew I wanted to use the Woodland Embossing folder for the background to my card.  I inked up the folder with Coastal Cabana and embossed a Very Vanilla card stock layer and layered over a Real Red and Very Vanilla Christmas Toile DSP.  I stamped the cardinal and branch with black Momento ink then colored it with Real Red and Shaded Spruce dark and light blender pens.  I stamped the greeting with Versa mark then heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.  I then die cut the cardinal, branch and greeting with the dies then adhered using glue dots.  I also used retired 3/8″ Real Red mixed satin ribbon.
