Tonic Studios Beautiful Day Circle Easel Card

It's my turn to post a project on Blog Tonic USA and here, and I am sharing a circle easel card I made with some of the new Sew Pretty dies from Tonic Studios. The dies in this range have pinholes that create a delicate and lovely look whether they are used for real or faux stitching or just left as die cut. I cut a large circle easel card out of pink cardstock (folding the front in half down.) I cut a black circle the same size as the card base and die cut three rows of pinhole circles using the Pinhole Circle Layering Set. I die cut all the pieces of the “Have a Beautiful Day Circle Frame Set” out of pink cardstock and attached with Tonic Funky Glue. I drew faux stitching on one of the circles with a thin black marker, and added Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops to the center of the flowers. The black circle front is attached to the bottom only of the folded pink front.  The easel front of the circle card is held up by a black strip decorated with the smallest die from the Filigree Flourish Die Set. I attached the strip with pop dots to raise it and added some Ebony Black Crystal Drops to these flowers too.  I find I use Nuvo Crystal Drops on almost every card I make. I love how they are self-leveling and add a perfect finishing touch to any craft project.

The card lays flat to mail as shown here:
