Pretty Metallic


Good morning crafty friends and I hope that everybody is OK today.

Tonic Studios have some truly gorgeous new dies which are  launching today at 2pm and these are called Sew Pretty.

They really are just that.

I will be sharing these with you over the next few days and to start off, I have chosen …..

The die is Sew Pretty- Cherish the Moment- Rectangle Frame and what I did was to cut the smaller die three times using black card from the Tonic Studios Monochrome Card Pack which you can get from Crafty Devils  Then I glued them all together so that it made a raised and sturdy piece.


Now when I was at Manchester a few weekends ago, I was having a play with the Double Detail dies and Embellishment Mousses and although it isn’t usually my ‘thing’, I was blown away by them all. So I decided to rub some of the Pure Platinum mousse over the top die cut piece and I loved how it gave it a real metallic look.  It looks like it should be really heavy I think but of course it isn’t.

The card works so well with the mousse because of its texture.

So that’s my card and I’ll be back tomorrow with another one – something ever so slightly different!!

Don’t forget to catch the show and enjoy the rest of your day, whatever you’re doing.

Crafty hugs,

Dawny xx
