Toile Tidings – Not only for Christmas

Recently I was commissioned by a dear friend to create ‘something’ for her to give to her staff.  She needed 200 of these somethings and could I come up with some ideas for her to consider.  Now that is a tall order.  I put my fingers to work and came up with several options for her to choose from and she selected 100 of this and 100 of that (posts on those later) but also really liked a card set I had made using  Stampin Up’s Toile Tidings.  She opted for 12 of those as well.  This post is about those…

Toile Tidings

My friend, let’s call her Colleen, cause that’s her name, wanted to give card sets to her 12 direct reports.  She liked the idea of non-holiday sentiments, but II also wanted them to be pretty and wintery.  I also wanted them to be cost-effective for Collen and applicable to men or women. I chose to use  Stampin Up’s Toile Tidings for all the cards using both the red and green sides of the paper with additions of either Black or Soft Suede.  I pulled sentiments from Good Morning Magnolia.

Card #1

Who doesn’t need a thank you card around the holidays?    I had visions of this having a fun fold somewhere but it just didn’t finish up that way.  Cards have a mind of their own sometimes.  I pulled out, for the first time, my Christmas Layers die set.  These dies are sold with the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in a bundle but can be used for so much more.  I chose to crop it in Soft Suede and layer it over the  Toile Tidings Green Stripe. paper  The Tailored Tag was just the right size and shape for my Thanks Sentiment.  Just a bit of Real Red peaking out from behind another piece of the DSP with the glitter enamel dots to finish the job.

I’ll be sharing my other cards in this gift box in my other posts this week and into next. I hope you will stop by and see what all I have created.  Until Next Time…

Happy Stamping
