Just for You Holiday Card with Tonic Goodies


I wanted to make a couple holiday cards to say thank you to some special people at Tonic Gold U.S. who gave me this great opportunity to be a Tonic U.S. Blog Ambassador and who have been so generous with Tonic Gold products. They should have received their cards by now, so I am sharing the card here. I started with a background made with my favorite Brusho Crystal colors on watercolor paper. Then I die cut Tonic's Winter Snowflake out of the middle. I added some of Tonic's Mother of Pearl Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to the snowflake with a soft cloth and popped it back in. I also added the mousse to the words I cut out from one of the Everyday Squares Die Set. Then I added gold dots using Tonic's Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops for the finishing touch. Both of these Nuvo products from Tonic add gorgeous metallic color so easily and the drops are round and perfect without the annoying curly tails of other similar products.

I am entering this card in the Holidays challenge at Scrapy Land and the Die Crazy challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (of course I used Tonic dies).
