365 Cards Day 168 - A Touch of Toile
The challenge today at 365 Cards is to use toile as the background. Now, my family may beg to differ, but, as a newbie to card making, my supplies are somewhat limited. I had no toile paper! I did have some wallpaper sample books to turn to... and here is what I came up with.
The background paper is stitched to the cardstock- I have used wallpaper on a few cards and the glues that I have never seem to be sticky enough. I just got this new Martha Stewart border punch (double scallop) at Michael's and I was itching to use it, lol. And the metal embellishment is from the dollar store, there were five in the package! I am a dollar store junkie. There are not many places to shop for craft supplies in our small city so I find the dollar store to be a great source! In fact, my kids call it the $20 store :) .
Oh yeah, I almost forgot! I made these cute little cards yesterday- also found the adorable bubble stickers at the dollar store! I ran the cardstock through my Cuttlebug with the circle Quickutz (there were two different size stickers in the package). And the sentiments were from a paper stack that had a few alphabet die cut pages. I popped them up on foam squares and voila! I think they are so sweet- and so easy!
It is gonna be a scorcher here today (34 degrees C)!! That means beach allllll day.
Have a great one, and I hope it is as nice a day where you are!!!
