Tonic Studios - Congrats Baby Card

Hello Friends, 
I have a baby card to share with you created with Tonic Studios dies and products. I have to tell you that the Nuvo Crystal Drops have become my favorite, they make perfect little pearls!









Instructions:

I started by making a 7 ½” x 7 ½” card base with white cardstock. For the next layer, I die cut 4 corners with Verso Corner Die Set – 410E with yellow and blue cardstock.
I cut out a circle from the white card base using Circle layering Die Set – 481E and glued acetate paper on top. Next, I glued the 4 corners with Funky Glue Pen – 421E as pictured. I used  Nuvo Crystal Drops – Ivory Seashell – 675N to create pearls around the border.
I die cut Rococo Royal Carriage Die- 1274E from white and blue cardstock and glued to center of the card on acetate. I die cut  Miniature Moments Congrats! Die – 1245E from white and blue cardstock and glued to card.
The flowers were created with Petal Pairs Flower Punch – Set 3 Janelle – 882E and the leaves were die cut with Arboreal Dream Die Set – 656E. I embellished the center of the flowers with micro-beads. For the bow I used white silk ribbon.
