Nicky Gilburt - Win and Tonic February 2017

Here is my card for a teensy bit of inspiration for the February Win and Tonic Challenge

The themes for February are:

Colour - kraft plus anything
Technique -  bling it up. Add glitters, glitter drops, anything sparkly
Product - free choice so any Tonic product is fine
Theme - happy anything ie birthday, anniversary or just be happy

I think that this time I managed to include everything!
This is a type of easel card, made with two card blanks, one Kraft, one white.
Once I had diecut my aperture through the kraft card, as shown here,
I attached it to a white card blank and added my embellishments

The dies used in this project were:
Butterfly Circle Doily
Royal Fern
Rococo Happy Anniversary
Small Lacy Bows
A very old but lovely Tonic butterfly whose name escapes me!

 I was able to build up the layers on the inside with Sticky Pads

I used the bow as a stopper for the easel part of the card, and trimmed off about 5cms of the base card in front of it

And to finish it off...some bling of course!
