Thank you card

My post for today is a thank you card, this is my DT sample for MTTC  who run a weekly challenge.
I started by placing my inner and outer tonic dies near to the top of a sheet of A4 card. once they were stuck in place I marked where I wanted to cut from. I placed the card and dies onto my cutting plate matching the edge of my top plate to the markers on my card I then everything was run through my machine. I then removed the outer die and placed everything back and embossed as normal. I then folded the card where the cut line finished and trimmed my card so has just enough left to put a border. I used my outer die again with mirror card and placed this behind my shape on my card. After punching my border and matting onto mirror card this was added to my card along with corner peeloffs. To finish I made a topper using the two smaller inner and out dies and added a sentiment.

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments appreciated x
