Key to my Heart

I'm in love with the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies that Stampin' Up! has just came out with! They are so much fun!! --you'll notice the fun I've been having once you see my next few posts.. ; )

Once i cut out the heart with the big shot i then sprayed a bit of stampin' mist directly onto the heart and crumpled it up into a ball. (my stmapin mist is half water and half mist). Lay flat to dry.

With white craft ink i stamped my greeting right on the black satin ribbon!! so cool... ; )

Once the heart was dry I attached one side of the ribbon to the back of the heart with a stampin' glue dot. I then slipped the trinket key on from the other side of the ribbon and attached it down at the back of the heart with another glue dot. I added stampin dimensionals to the back of the heart before i attached it to the card front.

For the Background i stamp the medallion image from Artistic Etchings in basic gray (stamping off once to lighten the gray) and then i inked up the en francais background stamp in basic black and stamped over the randomly stamped medallions.

I love the way this card turned out so i thought I'd make a few more for the flower shop where i sell my handmade cards. I was short on trinket keys so i changed it up a bit. This is a perfect card for Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Birthday.... you name it ..It's PERFECT for any loved one! : )

As you can see the only thing i changed up was the key! I stamped the key from the Artistic Etchings set and punched it out with the large oval punch. I also added a small heart and small rhinestone gem!

Hope you like.. : )
