Tonic Studios Craft Kit 2 - a Christmas bauble! - Nicky Gilburt

I'm sharing today a double project - the easy bit was making this cute Christmas tree ornament with the dies and gorgeous cardstock that come with Tonic Craft Kit 2, a monthly subscription kit that contains dies, stamps, papers, tools, Nuvo goodness I have barely scratched the surface with this one!

I used the nesting frame dies with the red Craft Perfect card and cut four frames, then made an inset frame for each side in luxury gold card, then made three smaller shapes to fit inside. 
I used my own gold thread and a few beads to mount the central arrangement with the three poinsettias. 
To finish, I die-cut some holly leaves (from the die with the kit; it has some gorgeous little shapes for embellishing!) out of green glitter card from my stash, and some berries with the red glitter card from the kit. 

I said at the start of this blog, that this was a two-part project. For my extra hints and tips you can see an actual video on YouTube - my FIRST EVER demonstration video, a lot of learning for me, but a lot of fun too! I'd love it if you could pop over and have a look, and even more if you leave a 'thumbs up' when you have.

Click here to be among the first to see my video - and apologies for the glue on my left hand! I'll remember next time!

Who knows...I might even do another one! You could even subscribe to my new channel and see what I come up with next! 

Happy Crafting with the Tonic Craft Kits. Can't wait for number 3!
