Ive been playing with the new Tonic Wreath Ring Dies


Ive been busy playing with two of the new Tonic Wreath Ring Dies, the top one is the Holly one and the bottom is the Decorative one, I used Pearlescent white card for both of them, on the top one I have used just the inner ones to cut two rings, and the bottom I have used the two one of them cut the inner edge completely.
For the holly wreaths are two stamps one is a Stampendous one and the other a Woodware one, I stamped both onto white card then used my copic pens to colour them, for the top card I cut the wreath out and for the second it was positioned behind the cut out circle.
The base cards are A5 ones and the top one has the red card behind the cut out pieces and the bottom one its been used as a mount.
I then placed both onto the white base cards and created two poinsetta flowers with the Tattered lace die and placed them at the top of the left hand corner on top of punched out holly leaves, I put some glitters in the middle with Stickles. And for the top card I have used the die cut sentiment across the bottom right hand corner and for the bottom I have placed the smaller die cut sentiment across the holly wreath in the center.
This Cards is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
