Toile Christmas Above & Beyond Card

Toile Christmas Above & Beyond Card

I have an award winning card to share with you today!  I entered this card into the York Fair and it earned a 2nd place ribbon.  To be honest, I think it was the only handmade card entered, and I’m not really sure what it was competing against since there was no category specifically for cards.  It did win an award though.

Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas

We will be making this card in the Above & Beyond Christmas class which begins on October 3.

This straight on shot doesn’t show the layers of this card very well.  Check this picture out.

SU! Toile Christmas

Using stampin’ Dimensionals, dimensionals on top of dimensionals, and the new puff paint add great dimension to this card.

I hope you will mark your calendar now with plans to take the Above & Beyond class!  Also, the Toile Christmas stamp set is our Stamp of the month class for October.  These are both going to be great classes!

Here are the details on both of those classes:

  1. I would like to have directions on how to make your award winning 2nd place card. I am a dealer and live in Chesapeake, Va. It looks like you used black/white for the bird and maybe the puffy paint for the greenery in white. Am intrigued how you used your dimensionals on different levels. I am looking to use this stamp set only in black and white on the card. If I need to pay for directions, I will. I have everything I need in supplies. Thank you for your time in advance, Karen Benton

    • Hi Karen,

      I made this card using Gold Embossing Powder, so this is actually a gold and white card. I used the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint which Stampin’ Up! carried last year for the branches. As far as dimensionals, I used dimensionals for the branch. Then, when I added the cardinal and sentiment, I simply used two layers of dimensionals to make them pop up even higher than the branch.

      Hope that helps. Happy creating!
