Toile Christmas - Fun Fold

Do you know the origin of "toile"?  It's a fabric  from a French word meaning "linen cloth" or canvas. Toile de jouy fabric originated in France in the 1760s and usually depicted pastoral scenes.  Today it comes in many different patterns and colours.  Stampin' Up! have brought out their own patterns in the form of Toile Tidings DSP in Garden Green and Real Red to go with their new Toile Christmas Bundle.

Today's card is the result of much trial and error.    I've made the mistakes so you don't have to - not to mention the amount of card stock I went through and the DSP I wasted in the process!  There is a lot of cutting, so I've included a cutting guide in this post.







Aside from the card base, you'll need extra Very Vanilla card stock for stamping the banner and fussy cutting it for the front of the card, and some Gold Foil for the banner mat layer and leaves.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving day!

I've been wanting to use these gorgeous Hand-Lettered  Prose dies and took my inspiration from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.  Instead of a picture in a frame, I simply adhered the letters to a nested stitch label.


I love that there are a couple of leaves in the coordinating die set which can emboss the leaves, so I dipped them in my ink pad before I embossed it and it created this effect!

Have a wonderful reunion/celebration on this special day.

Christmas Countdown #Wk 10 of 12 - Tiny Keepsakes

Oh my - how quickly this series has gone and now we're on the 10th week!  I thought I'd better turn my attention to some table favours!  The best thing about Christmas is the food and we all love a pretty festive table, don't we?

Stampin' Up! makes it SOOOO easy!  Welcome back, curvy treat box, this time in miniature as there is just room enough to put a sweet in - depends on the size of your sweet, I guess!   I've put a generous round Lindor chocolate in mine - the perfect end to a Christmas meal.
