Key to My Heart
Most of you don't know this, but I am a Close to My Heart consultant. I was a consultant in the past and recently rejoined. They have some super cute stuff for scrapbooking. I don't do parties or sell the product locally. I'm just a hobby demo. Why am I telling you this?! Because I have to share the Key to My Heart special that is going on until the end of the month. The stamp set and papers in this set are just beautiful!
I used my cardstocks and the stamp set from the kit to create this card. Isn't that corner flourish beautiful?! And that sentiment and heart?! Seriously, I love this kit and plan to use the stamp set a lot in my scrapbooking. It also has a beautiful journaling stamp among other things. I have some extra kits and plan to use them to create my mother's day gifts this year.
Okay, on to the details. I stamped the flourish on the colonial white cardstock and then stitched it to my tulip layer using pink thread before adding it to my juniper card base. I added some flowers and rhinestones to the flourish.
I stamped my sentiment in tulip ink on colonial white cardstock and added a heart using blush ink. I added my mat and stitching again. I added some lace and punched cardstock below my sentiment mat. I used foam adhesive to add my sentiment to my card. Then, I stamped the key on shrink plastic using staz on ink. I used my heat gun to shrink the key and it is the perfect embellishment for my card. I tied a bow using some pink sheer ribbon and added my key, bow, and some buttons to my card to finish it off.
Have a great day!
