You rock birthday card

Another birthday card using a combination of Tonic dies and a Hunkydory image, this one is from the Little Book of Everything, and was made for my nephew's birthday.

I picked out the brown in the image background and used a 7 x 7 kraft card blank. On to this I matted and layered red card and then cream which co-ordinated with the colours in the image. I layered the image on to the same cream and red card, then put this on the left side on the card front using foam pads.

I used the Tonic Miniature Moments Birthday wishes die and cut it in red and cream card, drop shadowed the red one on to the cream one and placed this on the card front. I also cut three notes from red card using the Tonic Rococo music dies and put them on the front.

Thanks for stopping by please leave a comment if you have time as I'd be really grateful.

Cherish the moment


I've made this card for the Win & Tonic Challenge May 2017, which I've not entered for ages and am doing at the real last minute!

I followed these themes: Colour neutrals, Product - any Nuvo product and the Open theme of any occasion.

I used an 8 x 8 cream card base matted and layered with kraft card and pale cream and goldy cream patterned paper from the docrafts Papermania Capsule collection Oyster Blush. I die cut the Cherish the Moment die set from Limetree Crafts' Caramel Twist card and layered on to a paler cream mat from the same Papermania Capsule collection, then put it on the card front using foam pads. I also die cut the butterfly column from the Sew Pretty range in the 2 shades of cream, then drop shadowed one on the other using small foam pads.

I finished it off by adding mother of pearl embellishment mousse to the butterflies, sentiment and to the edges of the die cut topper. I also added a few pearls, I was going to use Nuvo Crystal drops but the bottle was gummed up so I'll need to sort that out!

I hope you like it, please leave a comment if you've got time.

16th birthday card

this is a card I made for a friend's daughter for her 16th birthday - a bit of a milestone birthday so I wanted to choose something with some meaningful words.

This was made from the Hunkydory Wishes on Wings kit which has some really pretty images in it and nice verses on tags. As it was a special birthday and I wanted to fit an image and verse on the front I used and 8 x 8 card blank - as I was handing it over no need to worry about postage costs! Having chosen the toppers I used the complementary backing card to cover the front of the card. I used the Tonic Art Nouveau die to cut two mats from Adorable Scorable card I had in my stash to put the topper and verse on to.

To finish it off I chose a matching sentiment, added the number 16 die cut from silver mirri to match the foiling on the toppers and added a double silver bow.

Thanks for stopping by, if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it.
