Good afternoon everyone, well it's that time to share another card with you from Tonic Studios Woodland Buildables collection.

The card was created using:-
Celtic circles large layering die sets
Basic Square layering die sets
Twisting Veranda die set
Congratulations sentiment 
Oliver Owl - Woodland Buildables
Woodland Banner Die set

The card was created using the outer scallop from the Celtic circles die set cutting 2 of the large circles out in black card stock and scoring about 1" down and across  the back panel of the card this will then form your hinge for the card blank stick to the front panel using wet glue or a strong tape like the red double sided tape would be ideal.
Then you need to cut 2 of the detailed panels from the Twisting Vernda in white and over lap them to create the Lattice effect glue these together using a little wet glue.
Oliver owl is cut from craft perfect card stock in shades of grey and Oliver's tummy has been guilded with nuvo mousse just to enhance the embossing. The graduation hat was 2x squares one slightly smiller than the other, with a brad  putting a hole through the centre attaching a black tassle.
The scroll is just a piece of thin card rolled up and fine red ribbon tied off.
You then need to cut the main part of the banner in black and the top layer in white then adding congratulations die in red card stock the banner was then shaped so it was an arched shape and this was glued down its hot glue just at each end just to give the card some dimension.

Thank you for stopping by

Until next time

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family.
