Tonic Die and Punch Card

Have become addicted to all of the amazing Tonic Dies and Punches.  They always cut so well and the designs get better and better. I have seen a sneaky peak of some new ones coming and know I will want them.  

Today's card is made of a piece of white card with a piece of acetate stuck on. I used the Butterfly Border Punch and cut both sides of a 3 1/4 inch strip of card.  As this card is 6x6 inches square I had to snip part of the border edge away and overlap the layers a little.  I cut the border in 3 shades of purple card.  The hearts were cut with the Tonic Indulgence Dies.  The Tonic Everyday Sentiments die Just for You was cut from glitter card.  

I felt the card was busy enough without adding any ribbons, bows or other crafty things.  Just the day - wet and windy - to enjoy crafting.  Although the weather has settled for a few minutes and the sun is trying to come out.

I hope you can see the 3 different shades of purple/lavender/lilac card used for cutting the border strips!

I love the Tonic Sentiments dies - I see there are some new must have ones coming out soon.....  I also would like the Christmas ones from last year that I missed.

Just had one of Dave's lovely Sunday Lunches and now want to spend time adding the binding edge to some quilted table mats I am trying to make.  Some many projects but so little time!  

I saw a saw a Pinterest idea of taking photos and using wallpaper on the PC as a backdrop - we have quite a dark house so thought I would give this a go - used some wallpaper, may craft room has a daylight bulb.  Need to practice a bit more but great idea.
