New POTD Sentiment Frames Card

Wow, three posts in one day!

As there is a Tonic Studios Pick Of The Day die release today I thought I'd give you a sneaky peek at what I've been making with them.

This is an 8" x 8" card blank that I made myself from a couple of sheets of trimmed down A4 card that I stuck together.  I die cut a decorative oval for the centre out of gold, I used the outer edge of the Verso Loopy Lace Simplicity die setI cut one of the Layering Ovals in cream card which I inked and stuck on top.  The If Friends Were Flowers sentiment was again cut in cream and inked before being layered on top of this and a couple of trimmed down swirls from the Mystic Vine die set were added.

For the bowed front I cut a piece of card which measured 11" x 8" scored at 1" and 10" to give me my overlap to stick behind to the rear of my card front.  I embossed the outer edge of the If Friends Were Flowers die set before cutting the patterned inner die.  Due to the size of this and the fact that I was cutting in the middle of my plates, I had to turn and run through my die cutter a few times but it still cut with no problems providing you stick it down well enough so you can move and check it.  I punched out two strips using the Intrica Butterfly Strip punch which I added to each side.  The card front was then stuck in place with an extra piece of 8" x 8" stuck inside the card to cover the joins.   This card was finished off with some pearls in the flowers and on each of the butterflies on the strips and a nice big gold hand tied bow.

I hope you like it and that you will tune in to Ideal World tonight at 9pm for the Launch Show of these beautiful dies.
