Tonic Studios Header and Sentiment Dies


I am working on a magazine article in which I am showing different ways to use the same die set. I have chosen Tonic Studio's Garden Terrace Header Set as the set I am featuring. My first card is showing a traditional way to use a header die- popping up from the top of a card. I had forgotten how much I love dark plum cardstock and used it on the first two cards I designed. But no matter what I tried, the pretty dark plum color looks more black than plum in my pictures. I started with a 5 1/4" square white card base. I cut a dark plum piece 5" x 6 3/4" and die cut the floral header and Tonic Studio's Mr. and Mrs. heart dies. I die cut the Miniature Moments "Congratulations" out of a white cardstock scrap and attached to the card. I added some pearls to complete the wedding congrats card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  and Aud Sentiments.
