Lucia's First Christmas

It's my only niece, Lucia Isabella's first Christmas, so I thought that for my last blogpost for Tonic before Christmas, I'd share this special card with you. 
Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Verso Holly Rings, Verdant Vines and Tag Dies, Snowflake and Simplicity Snowflake punches, Spellbinders Scallop Circle and Grand Labels1, Grand Calibur
Stamp: Mo Manning, Kanban
Colouring Mediums: Promarkers, Pebbles Inc Chalks, Versamark, Glitter and Clear Embossing Powders
Paper and Card: Stardream, DCWV, Satin Elegance
Embellishments: snowflake ribbon, gingham check ribbon, rhinestone crystals, snaps

I really wanted to showcase the filigree die-cutting of the large Verso Holly Ring, which I've used as the mat to my main image.  So I used a fancy shaped card, folded in half, as my card base, leaving over half of the Holly Ring free-standing above the card base.

You can find lots more photographs and details of how I made this card over on my own blog, please do pop over and take a look.

I would like to end by wishing you all a happy, safe and loving Christmas with those that matter most to you, peace, joy and happiness to you all.
