Two cards with Tonic's new strip dies - a post from Edna

Good morning. Welcome to the blog today .Thank you for taking the time to visit, it's lovely to have your company.

I have two similar cards today using the new Tonic Strip Dies.
I have used them cut outside the card and inside the card to form decorative bands - just great if you need a card in a hurry. 

Tonic - Royal Shrub Strip die set; Trellis circle die set
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink

I've cut two complete borders out of white card stock and edged the purple pearlescent card with the same edge die I've used on the strips. 
The little border on the bottom of the card is also cut with the same edge.
I just love that centre die from the Circle Trellis set - perfect for a wee sentiment!

On my second card the strips have been cut out of the pink card stock layer leaving the design in the card. I've overlaid this onto my base card.
I've created a decorative bow on the top using the banner dies from the large lacy bow set.
The bottom of the card has been embossed using the Garland Fancy set and I've used one of the sentiments from this set to finish the card. 

Tonic - Clematis Climber strip die set; Large lacy bow set; Garland Fancy die and embossing set

Thank you for calling in. Have a great day!
