Tonic Art Deco and Chocolate Baroque Stamps – a Winning Combination


Hi Everyone

MJ is back from holibobs and is striving to get stuff done which includes catching up on her blogging!  So here goes….

Today MJ has created a vibrant card project to inspire you she hopes.  She has used gorgeous Distress Ink colours of Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters. 


Choc Baroque and Tonic drop down card


MJ started by creating a base gatefold card from a piece of 12” x 6” white card.She then mat and layered both inside and outside of the side panels.   Next she created a second card for the inside by cutting a piece of card at 11 7/8” x 5 7/8”.  Folded it in half and then created a pop out step which was 2” wide by 1” deep i the centre of the fold.  Bent it over to create crease lines.  Then she went onto create the inside scenes with her Chocolate Baroque stamp collection.  Once dry she glued it in position so that the inside card falls down when opening the card. Added decorated side panels to match.

MJ then die cut a greeting panel and a border strips using Tonic Studios die sets.  She then used ribbon as a tie for the card gluing the ribbon under the front borders to finish.
