Tonic Festive Kaleidoscope Triangle Box - Merry Christmas card

Oh my, it's been a while. Things were a wee bit hectic for a while but thankfully calmer waters are now being sailed upon. In other word several long stories but won't bore you all 😁😉

Today over on Hochanda, Jodie is launching the new Tonic Studios Kaleidoscope Box - which of course fits perfectly with all the other Kaleidoscope boxes already launched - what else would you expect from Tonic Studios ...

Tonic Festive Kaleidoscope Lid  Base   Insert Die Collection   19-755824

My first project that I am sharing today for this launch, is actually a quick & easy card made using elements from the triangle lid, plus the additional flora/fauna elements.

I began by cutting 3 square panels and lightly inked the edges with Nuvo Diamond Hybrid ink in Dried Oregano - from Rose Garden selection. Next, die cutting, embossing & inking one of the edge panels from the lid, it was placed at the bottom on the square panel. Next I cut the 2 layering triangles from paper, inked the edges, adding these to the square panel. Next using Craft Perfect gold mirror card & the holly flourish die, I add this detail to each of the triangles, finishing with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry.

Once all the panels were made, I die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment in Craft Perfect Jet Black card. I've snipped in to the sentiment as I felt it was more in keeping with the card design that way. As an added added finishing touch, out came the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry again.

As I said, a quick card to make and fabulous one to use up all your scraps ... believe me, I have a few hundred scraps that need using up, so the more designs I can think of that helps, the better 😄😏😅

Right back to editing photos and getting blog posts ready, as loads more to share with you using the new Kaleidoscope dies.
