Tonic DL Layering dies - Edna Taylor

Good afternoon and welcome to the blog today.

I hope you have been enjoying the latest Tonic Studios launch today.
There are five brand new sets of dies in the launch and they are fantastic to work with whether you want to make a DL or any other size of card.
Join Jodie on Hochanda for great demos and lots of inspiration from the design team.

My first card features the Rivoli plain and decorative die sets.
These dies intermix giving lovely matting and layering opportunities. The decorative dies are also Verso which means they cut into your card stock with the option of also cutting them out as separate layers.

I have used the Rivoli in a basic form for this Christmas card together with one of Tonic's older sentiment dies that just fits the space perfectly.
The finished card is 5 x 8 1/4" 

Tonic products used - 
The Holly and the Ivy strip die border (scallop edge on red card stock)
Craft Perfect - Scarlet Organza
Handmade papers - Antique Bookshop collection
Craft Perfect - Red and white poinsettias
Joy to the World greeting

 My second card uses the other set of DL dies - Vanity plain and Vanity Decorative and has a distinctive ring of Art Deco about it.

Tonic products used - 
Swirling frame layering dies for card base and layers
It's Party Time stamp set
Family Members die - Daughter
Craft Perfect - Jet Black, High Gloss black, Silver Silk Speciality card
Nuvo Silver Lining Crystal drops

For the handbag I used Vanity #1 (largest in the plain set)
I scored at 2" for the flap and then at the half way mark from the section that was left.
I used the Vanity Decorative dies  #2 and #4 for the pattern in the flap. (#1 being the largest and counting in).
Using the smaller dies in the decorative set I made a little pocket section on the front of the bag to tuck the flap into. 
I made the handle from the Vanity plain set and attached it to the back of the card.
The bag opens to reveal a message.

Thank you for joining me today.
