Today, we are making a Toile inspired Christmas card.
Toile is a fabric printed with a repeating pattern. The standard for Toile is single colour and the theme is usually the scenic French countryside. Toile usually printed in black, blue or red for wallpaper or upholstery.
Although the Campology stamp set is not a Christmas stamp set, it has a gorgeous pine tree forest and therefore perfect for our Toile inspired card.
I used the Campology stamp set so that I can showcase it’s versatility for other cards beyond male cards.
First, get a thin piece of copy paper so we can make a mask. The masking technique demonstrated in the video below is vital for Toile design.
Next, ink up the edge of your card front before sticking onto your card base. This frames your work nicely therefore giving it a polished look.
Third, heat emboss some gold powder for the sentiment. Gold adds a luxurious detail on your cards and should be incorporated in your cards whenever you can.
Lastly, add shimmer and shine to your card with Wink of Stella and some Snowflake Sequins.
Here’s a step-by-step video to help you make the card.
