More of what you can do with your new Indulgence affection dies ...

The new Tonic Indulgence Affection dies have been a huge success. Here`s a few more designs to share with you.

I will do a tutorial on how to make this card after Christmas. The initials have been cut on the Cricut machine and the writing on the inside if the card is computer generated. I`ve finished off with a ribbon bow and a few gems.

These dies will suit any occasion. Here`s a Birthday card using the large heart die.

I love making these diorama cards and the dies make it so easy. Take two A5 cards score the outer edges of both cards at 1" and 1.5". Place the 2nd largest heart die into the centre of one of the cards between the score lines. Cut the largest of the heart dies using both the core dies I`ve placed a strip of acetate across the centre of the back of the heart to attach the sentiment. Place a backing paper between the crease lines of the uncut card. Place the two cards together and stick together the outer inch of the card - I use super sticky tape.

I`ve punched out some strips using the Tonic Delicate Lattice punch. 

I made some tissue paper flowers using the scallop layering dies. Cut about 6 circle from tissue paper - the paper can be folded and all the circles cut at the same time. Make a small hole in the centre of the flower and secure with a small brad. Scrunch up the petals of the flower and open out a little to make a beautiful flower.

The Happy Birthday is cut from a Tonic Sentiment die and stuck onto the acetate.

Hope your Christmas plans are going well, catch up with you again soon

  1. Hi. Could you please tell me if you have posted instructions on how to make the above wedding invitation using the tonic affection dies. I have been unable to locate if you have. I have recently purchased these dies and would like to adapt to make a wedding card.
    Thank you
