Happy St Patrick's Day

I would like to wish all my Irish friends a very happy St Patrick's Day. Hope you're enjoying the craic and a toast of your favourite tipple.

I've  used one of my favourite die sets - Celtic Dream layering set -  to create the card base

Using the Traditional hearts layering die set I've created dimension on the card by folding the hearts in half.
The Banner die is from the Buildables die range, The sentiment is computer generated by Sian in the Tonic office. I'm not terribly good with the computer, lol.

Of course it wouldn't be a Tonic card if it wasn't finished off with Crystal Drops.

This is the card I made on this week's Tonic Live show. You can follow  me step by step in the You Tube video  below.

Number Crunching

This month's card for Win and Tonic Challenge I've used Tonic's new alphabet and number dies.

This month's Challenge  is  "Anything  Goes" so if you use  a Tonic product  you can enter for a chance to win the fantastic Woodland Buildables  die set.

I've kept this card simple, using black and white card with a splash of pink.

The Bowscale die set makes a beautiful  decorative  card base. I cut the Numerals  die into the white card layer. This card was then layered onto black card which was slightly larger.
 I then cut the same die in raspberry and saved the numbers 50 to insert into the die cut.
To make the frame I used the hexagon layering die set.  This was placed on 3d foam pads to add dimension.
The alphabet was cut in white card stock and thembossing word BIG stuck to the frame.
Flowers were then cut from the raspberry and white card and used to decorate the card. Of course I had to finish the card off with some black crystal drops.
