Tonic Returns...

Happy Friday,

can you believe its the last day of January already?  It seems 2 minutes since I was blogging my Christmas stuff and here we are end of the first month of January!  Today I wanted to post something bright to remind us that the coldest darkest weather will pass soon.

Now I know I have used the same die as yesterday ( I cant find the packet for this so sorry I am not sure what the same is guys!  However it is one of the new ones that fits a centre die in  the middle if that helps) however with a change of colour and emphasis I think it can be made to look different.  This time I've made the cut the focal element rather than the background and highlighted with a soft blue (pastel week continues in its own way lol)

I started by embossing a piece of pale blue PMD cardstock in a Darice A4 folder then double mounted this on white and blue cardstock.

The strip of 4cm ribbon(Chino shop bargain) is added before the die cut.

Finally a sentiment a bow and a couple of felt roses.  The roses are cut with a Marianne rose die.



  1. Hi John,Your cards are magnificent with attention to every little detail.
    I like!
    The treliis die is called Tonic Stodios Boudoir Sqare, by the way.
    Best Wishes, Lis Kervill
