Good afternoon everyone  ,feels a while since I last blogged but there is always lots to share with you and amazing launches coming up over the next couple of months,but today I would like to share a card with you created with Tonic Studios Brand new Doily launch ,launching this evening on Hochanda with Paula Pascual at 6pm so please don't miss the launch these dies are so very pretty with a  Verso Edge to give the Variety of different ways to use these die sets cutting into the card stock or out of the card stock the choice is yours, I must say I had lots of fun with these dies they look so elegant and pretty depending on your choice of colours and card stock.There are 3 sets - Devoted Doily,Dainty Doily & Crocheted Doily.
Materials used:-
Devoted Doily
Cream smooth 300gsm card stock
Gold mirror card - craft perfect polished Gold
Congratulations banner sentiment die / stamp
Square pinhole die set
Nuvo clear mark ink pad
Nuvo gold embossing powder 
Nuvo Crystal drops- Ivory Seashell
Satin tipple bow and heart embellishment

This card really would be lovely as a wedding card / engagement card or Anniversary I love cream and gold together adding a touch of elgance really my style of card if i were to have a certain style. The card is a 7x7 card with mat & layers the top section of cream card stock had the pinhole square layering die added just to add a little more detail into the background  then a square layer was cut from the card on a point to point  angle again to add depth and dimension to the card and also to let the gold mirror  card shine through.
 The next two layers were cut in cream and gold and die cutting the cream card in the centre again to let the gold layer shine through  then adding the stamped and embossed banner die to the centre add a little bit more dimension ,shape the banner with your fingers to get the shape and just glue the end pieces so the centre is floating off the Doily.To finish the card add a matching bow and the Ivory seashell Nuvo drops to the centre of the Doily.
