Not as fiddly as it looks


This pretty card looks like it might be quite tricky to reproduce, but with the aid of a few Tonic Tools and a couple of shades of cream card, it's not that hard at all.

I used the Simplicity Daisy Circle Die to make the doily shape. Then I cut a hole in the centre of the doily and also my card blank using my Circle Shape Mate. Then I used my Shape Mate to cut a doughnut of cream card which I stuck on top of the doily which was then all stuck onto my card blank.
 I punched out two shades of flowers using my Simplicity geared punch classics daisy punch. With a few dots of Funky glue I glued them around the doughnut using the doily edge as my guide for spacing. Then I punched one flower with my Multi Detail Punch and stuck it behind the aperture. This is what it looks like from the back. Then to finish I added a few pretty little gems and a pink paper insert. (The edge corners are the left over from this punch.)
Result - an intricate looking card for someone special. Thanks Tonic! :-)
