The Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper is perfect for traditional red and green Christmas cards.

The background of this beautiful DSP is Very Vanilla, so that’s what I chose for the card base. I topped it with the Garden Green print of leaves, berries and pinecones. Then, I added a 3/4″ strip of Garden Green, ticking DSP, also in the Toile Tidings pack. I trimmed this with a narrow band of Real Red Cardstock, cut with a Be Mine Stitched Die.

Christmas Wreath


Next, I needed a circle, because I was using Global Design Project’s sketch for inspiration.


A wreath would be perfect for my red and green Christmas card! Using a Beautiful Boughs Die, I cut five boughs from Garden Green Cardstock. Then, using two Layering Circles Dies, I cut a frame from Soft Suede Cardstock.

I used another Beautiful Boughs Die to cut a pinecone from Soft Suede Cardstock, and glued it to the frame, along with the five boughs. 


I placed Mini Dimensionals on the back of the frame, but before attaching it to the card front, I needed to add the sentiment.

“Believe” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set, which I stamped in Real Red Ink, and cut with a Merry Christmas label die.



I took a picture of the back, thinking you might be confused by my explanation.


And, here’s a final close-up. Isn’t that pinecone cute!
