You’re probably wondering what that is? It’s Tonic Studio’s challenge blog. They have a monthly topic and always a really decent Tonic prize. This month is ‘Christmas is coming’- so something festive. I’ve created a Christmas card using all non-seasonal products.

This weeks Blog Tonic post is a really simple and pretty quick shaker card, using Nuvo Mousse to create an ombre background, then die-cutting the maple leaf die from the top section, adding acetate behind, then adding on the inside vein pieces of the leaf to complete the image :D I also tried something new in this video, applying Aqua Shimmer Pen onto an embossing folder with some Cut N Dry Foam,...

The last live show went out this morning but the dies are still available to buy from Hochanda, and you can catch repeat shows to watch demos of how easy and how much fun these buildings are to make
