The Key to My Heart
I want to give a warm WELCOME and HELLO to my new followers. I hope you find something that inspires you here and I look forward to hearing from you.
I'm really loving the new Verve set Love Notes. This card I created has a mixture of cricut and stamping on it and that seems to be the design of choice for me is mixing up the two. You'll see more of this Verve set I used in some upcoming cards this month. This one could be used for Valentine, Anniversary, Love, a wide variety of occasions. I like the fact that I used up some older stuff I've been hoarding, that's my favorite part of this card. So on to the details...
Base white, then layered with some SU going gray that I embossed with the sizzix folder finial press SU. The dp layer is old old old creative memory paper that I matted with black and used the SU scallop trim border punch. I cut the black swirl from the cricut using the Wall Decor and More cart. I then stamped the heart from Verve on regal rose paper SU and cut it out. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same verve set on it and applied it with pop dots over the swirl. I dug through more of my stash and found some prima flowers I picked up on QVC a couple years ago. It still needed a little something so that's when I broke out the gems I've been hoarding and tried to make my own little swirl with them. The final touch was the little key I cut from Wall Decor and More cricut cart and attached it to the top of the heart after I sponged it a little with some black ink.
Hope you enjoyed this card. Thanks for stopping by. I dare you to shop your own stash and use something you've been hoarding... go ahead I dare you .. I promise it won't hurt either. Well you might feel a little twinge of anxiety but it passes! Check out the new USE IT blog. You can find the link in my sidebar under challenge category. Its a great way to use what you already have.
