CAS Tissue Box Inspired Butterfly Thanks

I bought a new box of tissues a few days ago and I loved the soft blue and white colour combo - pretty but crisp too. It inspired me to get out the white embossing powder and make this CAS thanks card. I very rarely use blue for feminine cards but I really like the soft look this card has.

The card measures just a tad under 5" square. I stamped a few stamps from the SU! Pocket Silhouettes set in white ink and embossed with white embossing powder and then I did the same with the Hero Arts Dandelion stamp. I glued the Bashful Blue panel onto the card, stamped the sentiment and then tied the gingham ribbon around the card.

Next, I punched out the butterfly using the gorgeous Craft Tonic Multi Detail Butterfly punch, I do love this punch! I placed the butterfly on a mouse pad and then ran an embossing stylus on both sides of the body and this pops the wings up. I added clear crystals to the butterfly body and 3 blue crystals to the right hand side to finish the card.

Here's the card shown with the box of tissues:

Stamps: SU! Pocket Silhouettes set, Hero Arts Dandelion, sentiment from SU! Trendy Trees set
CS: White CS, SU! Bashful Blue
Ink: SU! Whisper White Craft & Bashful Blue Classic inks
Tools: Craft Tonic Multi Detail Butterfly punch, heat gun, embossing stylus & mouse pad
Embellishments & accessories: White embossing powder, Doodlebug Bubble Blue gingham ribbon, clear & blue crystals

Hi, I have just discovered your blog and beautiful cards. Love them all. I just have to know about the butterfly punch on this soft blue card, is Tonic the brand, is it a punch not a die for a machine ? I just love the detail on it.
