Drop and Dot Frames - Nicky Gilburt

I'm sharing a card made with the lovely Dot and Drop frames, new from Tonic Studios. These lovely frames come in a variety of styles, this card is made with the Patterned Paisley layering die set, with Jet Black and Polished Gold Craft Perfect Card. There's a piece of the new Craft Perfect construction weight acetate too, covering the front of this shaker card. 

The technique with this card was that I die-cut the centre out of the top black panel (where you can see the acetate) but I only EMBOSSED the outer frame of it, so when I ran it through my Tangerine on my green rubber mat combination, it just made an indentation to show me where to dot my drops. 

The stars of the show are the Nuvo drops though... in Pale Gold and Ebony Black, I dotted gold round the outside of the frame, over the tiny pinpricks made by the die, and then black over the dots on the gold frame, for a classy finish to this shiny card!

Finished off with the gorgeous 'birthday' die from the Will's Hand collection, and some large sequins and confetti, this was a really fun card to make. 
Enjoy the shows on Hochanda and check out the Tonic team blogs for more card inspiration!

Happy crafting
