From Dips - A CAS Wreath Card

Many of you will know that I do love a Wreath Card, so it's no surprise that this is what I immediately thought to make with Tonic Studios' new Intrica Wild Vine Circle Die and Punch.
Tonic Studios Intrica Wild Vine Circle Die & Punch
Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Intrica Wild Vine Circle Dies, Intrica Wild Vine Strip Punch, Layering Square Dies, Christmas Cracker Die, Grand Calibur 
Paper and Card: Pearl, Stardream
Embellishments: Ribbon, Rhinestones 

I know that some people are slightly nervous about using intircate dies, I can assure you that I had no problems at all but here are my tips for creating a great cut:
  • cut your card to size pre-die cuting, this way you will be able to turn the dies
  • when using more than 1 die (for this card I used 3 off the dies combined), you will need to turn the dies and pass it through more than once.  It took three passes and turns for me to cut the wreath layers
  • I don't use wax paper with Tonic Dies (I've never needed to) but I do dust my Grand Cailbur silicon mat with baby powder to reduce static on my complex dies.
  • These dies are the size that fit in all cutting machines including the cuttlebug, not just the A4 machines.
I hope that this helps, and here's one final look at this wreath card
