Toile Christmas Simple Saturday Stamping Card

Hello and welcome to my blog and this week's episode of Saturday Simple Stamping.  This week we are making a Thank you card using the Toile Christmas Stamp Set.  Even with the holidays approaching we still need things like Birthday, Thinking of you, and Thank you Cards.  So this is not the time of the year to stop making those types of cards, why not when you're using those Christmas and Holiday Stamps not make a few cards for these occasions as well.  That's just what I did with today's Simple Stamping Card.  Here's a look at today's project.

Tips & Tricks: 

Most of you know that Simple Stamping was started last November by Stampin' Up! as a way to help crafters that are just getting started or have never stamped before to learn.  It's back to the basics with just stamps, ink, and paper, and maybe sometimes a punch or something else thrown in for fun.  I try to keep my versions of #simplestamping just at the basics.  I like to share cards that can be easily recreated by someone just starting out.  
For this weeks card I started out with a piece of Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock cut in half at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the cardinal from the Toile Christmas Stamp Set in Real Red ink on the front of the card.  And then added a scrap of the matching Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper I had left over from my Facebook Live project from Wednesday night.  I just attached that with a little snail adhesive and trimmed it to size afterwards.  
For the sentiment I used a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock also left over from Wednesday nights Facebook Live, and stamped the thanks from one of my favorite sentiment sets Here's a Card in Garden Green ink.  I then used the Timeless Label Punch and punched it out.  At this point it was looking a little plain so I added some of the small scrolls from the Toile Christmas Stamp Set to dress the punch out up just a little bit.  I added the label to my card with a couple stampin' dimensionals to finish it off.  
To finish the presentation of my cards I always like to dress up the envelopes.  And with my simple stamping cards it's no different.  For this weeks envelope I just stamped the top half of the cardinal on the flap of the envelope in Real Red Ink.
