Alphabet And Toppers Pick Of The Week Launch Card - from Karen

Here's one of the cards I made for the Tonic Studios Pick of the Week Launch which is on Create and Craft today at 1, 7 and 10pm, don't forget to set your Tivo for it :)

For this card I've made another 8" x 8" card blank out of plain white card and trimmed the front top corner by drawing around a dinner plate and trimming it down.  I've created a nice powder blue layer for the top by using the scrap I trimmed off the white card blank as a template.  I get exactly the same curve that way.  Before sticking the blue layer in place I added the ribbon so I could tuck the ends away underneath.

I die cut one of the new topper frames from the Believe/Love Topper Frames Die Set and made my own topper to go in it with the plain panel from the Thank You Topper Die Set, finally adding the Just for you from the Just For You Pansy Topper Die Set.

The Happy Birthday lettering was cut from the Pretoria Duocaps Initials Die Sets but just using the centres.  These were glued in place around the curve. 

The piece that was cut off when cutting the blue layer for the front was then trimmed down and glued in place on the exposed back corner and finished with a die cut corner from the Ivy Deco Frame Die Set.

The card was finished off with a nice full hand tied bow and quite a few tiny blue pearls.

I hope you like it. 

Here's a quick look at the new releases

  1. Your card is beautiful Karen - I love the powder blue card. I've ordered the POW plus the alphabet dies. But I think I'll be using the 'inner' letters the most as the others are a little too fancy.

  2. I thought the same Pamela but you'll definitely find you'll use the both, they look fab when you have a different colour on the inside :) Karen x
