Good evening ,A card to share for the launch of the Tonic Studios weekender- Card Layering Blanks & Minature Moment's  on create and craft - tune in to see jodie & jo work there magic to bring you fabulous inspitrational demonstrations and lot's of lovely goodies

Tonic Dies Used:-
Layering card Blanks -Harrop
Minature moment's Just to Say
Art Nouveau layering Set

Side view

The card was created using the Harrop die set and i added a musical themed paper from my stash and distressed the edges with antique linen & tea dye from tim holtz distressed inks i then cut the  Art Nouveau  die and mounted onto the card base then  thought it would be a great idea to create a little book with the smaller dies in the set i stamped the card with a music stamp i had in my stash and again distressed the edges with tea dye ink then shaped the pages using an empty xmas wrapping roll just to give the pages a light lift off the topper behind, i then cut the just to say greeting out in gold mirri & black card stock glued slightly off set to create shadow & depth and to finish i added white nuvo drops to the ribbon and added a matching bow.

Thank you for taking the time to look today

forever my friend

Good morning fellow crafters , well it has been a little while since my last blog post so I thought I would share today's card with you created with the last release from Tonic Studios Fairy Reflections and I just love this die I have used today- Cerys combined with Tonics Flip Flop - Forever my Friend.
Tonic Dies used:
Fairy Reflections Die & Stamp set Cerys
Flip Flop - Forever my Friends Die set

The card was created using A4 card stock I placed the base of the flip flop down on each edge with the shallow edge of the die towards the edge of the card stock once the cutting was complete I then scored the card in half and folded the sides back the finished card I added a strip of card stock to the back as a hinge just to add a little interest I will post a picture of the card below so you can see what it looks like not joined together so it can then be folded flat to go into an envelope.
I stamped Cerys and coloured her with nuvo alcohol pens and added some white dots to her dress with a white pen, the  papers are from my crafty stash I also added nuvo glitters and matching nuvo drops to finish the card.
As you will see a slight difference to the one i decorated the centre panels are slightly larger but this does fold flat for an envelope.

Until next time
