If it's G(45)& T(onic), make mine a double!

If anyone tells you they don't like Gin & Tonic, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life. 

Speaking of gin and tonic, today I'm sharing a few of my most recent creations using - G45 Artisan papers and Tonic dies. 

I bought the G45 Artisan collection earlier this year and felt it was time to crack it open and see what all the fuss was about.

Products used:
Tonic Layering Die Set - Swirling Frame
Tonic Beautiful Blooms Die Set 
Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen
Graphic 45 - Artisan Collection
Honey Doo Crafts - Sticky Glue
twine; string pearls; clear gems; hot glue

Some close up detail. 


 The matching box, which is decorated and lined. ready to post.

And here is the finished design. This is going to a wonderful friend, as a thank you to her. 

I've also designed a Birthday card & box for my niece, which I hope she likes. It did take a few hours to complete but I was happy to spend the time making something pretty neat for her. The card is fairly simple - layered up Ribbon and Bow Dies, then die cut a shedload of beautiful blooms, printed off one of my own fonts and stuck it all together. 

The box is constructed and then covered using the Artisan Papers and Tonic sentiment topper, which I cut up and separated into individual words. I layered up the papers and used Distress Ink - Black Soot around all the edges to close in the box. 

Products used:
Tonic Essential Card Pack - Monochrome 
Tonic Layering Die Set - Ribbon and Bow
Tonic Beautiful Blooms Die Set
Tonic Loving Birthday Topper Pack
Nuvo Jewel Drops
Graphic 45 - Artisan Collection
Distress Ink - Black Soot
