Tonic Studios USA Blog Ambassador - Just For You Card

Hello Friends,
I have great news! I am so excited to share that I am a Tonic Studios USA Blog Ambassador!  I will be designing projects with their wonderful products. They are a great company and have countless products for the paper craft industry including beautiful dies, punches, trimmers, Tim Holtz line of tools and now the new Nuvo Glitters and Crystal Drops which I love.

 I am delighted to share my first project for Tonic Studios with you all. I had a lot of fun working with the Entwining Trellis Die Sets.  I love to make paper flowers and these die sets have beautiful flower dies.


Create a 4 ¼” x 9 ¼” card base by cutting natural white cardstock to 8 ½” x 9 ¼” and folding it in half.
Cut a  4” x 9” piece of designer cardstock, mat with kraft cardstock and adhere to card front.
Die cut Bellus Buttercup from natural white cardstock, adhere to double sided adhesive sheet and then cut around frame. Cover exposed sticky areas with Pink Diva Pure Sheen Glitter. Mat this panel with designer and kraft cardstock and adhere to card front using foam tape.
Die cut multiple flowers using Bellus Buttercup Die Set, color flowers with distress inks. Shape flowers with Floral Crafter’s Tool Set and then glue petals together using Funky Glue Pen. Embellish center of flowers with Glitter Drops Golden Sunset. Adhere flowers to card front as pictured.
To make the leaves, use the flower dies from Radiant Roselily Die Set to cut the leaves from green cardstock. Shape leaves and glue under flowers.
Create a bow with pink silk ribbon and adhere to card. Glue small flower in the center of bow.
Cover inside of card with designer and kraft cardstock. Die cut sentiment from Just For You Pansy Topper Die Set, glue inside of card.
