fairy wishes

hello bloggers !!! 

only me i thought i would share with you a card that i had just finished making. i hope you enjoy. 

this card is using the following 

tonic dies  

  • layering butterflies dies 
  • reach for the stars frame sentiment die set . 
  • sentiment die i used is from another set - not sure on the name - "just a note to sayi

other materials used. 
sliver mirri card stock 
tonic glue 
8x8 card blank. 

how to make. 
to make the card i used the outer shape on the tonic reach for the stars die set onto some sliver cardstock. 

then i used both outer shape and inner shape to layer on top of the sliver card stock. 

i glued the white cut out onto the sliver card stock so it would look like a mirror effect. 
and then i cutted out 2 tonic layering butterflies in sliver and glued them on my card. 
i then glued 2 purple pearls on both of the butterflies. 

i then chose my sentiment for the frame to go on to my card i used the tonic sentiments die " just a note to say" on to white card. 

this is the card i made. 

thank you for taking the time to read my post.
