Lou Sims - Tonic Studios Elegant Sleeve dies ... definitely not just a card band!
A wonderful set of new dies from Tonic Studios are on HOCHANDA today launched as the 'One Day Special' on Friday and the collection is called 'Elegant Sleeves' - which is compiled of 6 different die sets. Although the designs can be used as decorative sleeves around your projects, there are loads of varied ways to use the collection.
I decided to use the Dazzling Droplets Elegant Sleeve dies as a middle band but on a page, to use within an album and also to act as a closure on a mini book page - complete with magnet.
Next using Array of Hearts Elegant Sleeve, I created a double sided wrap for a vellum envelope using the dies as they were designed to be ... a wrap/sleeve around something. What that means is the same design appears on both sides ... 😊😏
Now I've used the Dazzling Droplets again but this time to create a double border, colouring the die cuts with Nuvo Creative Marker pens. To hide the join, I've die cut the backing plate in vellum and then added a panel for the sentiment.
That's 3 of my projects shared and as you can see, I've only used the die cuts once to create a sleeve ... or as Jodie would say, a 'belly band'!
Which was your favourite from the collection? I'm not sure if I have a favourite as all are stunning & versatile.
