70th Birthday Card


I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and the bottom with turquoise, silver and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I die cut the three striplets using Sue Wilson dies. I attached them onto white card and then cut around them before adding them to the top of my card. I die cut the perfume bottles using Sue Wilson dies adding double sided adhesive to the die cut bottle and then attached the die cut detail to it before adding Tonic Studios Nuvo glitter. I have cut the numbers with Tonic dies and added them to topper that I made using a Sue Wilson die set.  I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Tonic die from a nesting set and mounted it onto a rectangle cut with the next size die in the nesting set. I attached this to the base of my card using foam pads so this will act as the stopper for the easel. Other personal details that I was asked to add have been printed and cut with a die from a Presscut nesting set.  I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Golden Wedding Anniversary Card


I have die cut the edge of the front of my 8x8in white card with a Tonic die. I matt and layered the front of my card with gold and white card. I die cut the one side of these layers with the outside edge of this die set so the layers fit up against the die cut. I embossed the top gold layer with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a scalloped circle die and using the next size circle in the nesting I cut a brown circle. I cut the flourishes with a Cheery Lynn die. I assembled all these elements on the front of my card. I die cut the flowers with the dies that come in the Tonic die set and attached them to the die cut edge. I completed my card with flat backed pearls.
