Romantic Roses and Keys Card for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday
Welcome to another edition of Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, my friends! Can you believe we are just two weeks away from Christmas? My goodness! Where has the time gone? I took a break from making Christmas cards to create this romantic roses and keys card. I thought it would be fun to make a card that uses just two colors. I chose pink and grey and combined them with stamps and paper from the Heartfelt Creations Floral Key Collection. Here’s what I came up with:
I created a 5″ x7″ card base from Smoky Slate cardstock then I embossed it and used a brayer to apply Memento London Fog ink over the raised portions. The wet ink was sprinkled with a tinsel embossing powder and heat set. I stamped the Script Key Background onto pink parchment cardstock with that same gray ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I love adding distressed edges to a project. I think it adds so much texture and visual interest. What do you think?
The “dream” key from the Keys and Roses PreCut Set was stamped onto a die cut oval and lightly water colored with Distress Markers. The edges were dry brushed with white acrylic paint.
This photo shows the dimension, distressing and dry brushed edges. The ribbon treatment was created by using red line tape on the back of the grey striped ribbon. the pink satin edged ribbon was tied into a triple loop bow.
We’ve had nothing but grey skies and rain the past few days, so it was hard to capture the colors of this card in a photograph. It’s very soft and romantic, but you’ll have to take my word for it!
The roses are handmade, die cut from the Spellbinder’s Bitty Blossom dies. I brushed them lightly with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and dry brushed them with white acrylic paint. I wanted everything to have that wonderful shabby chic vibe that I love so much.
The inside is made with more pink parchment cardstock and a beautiful corner from the Floral Key paper collection. I fussy cut along the bottom edge and then added one of the pre-printed sentiments from the cut apart pages. I love the fact that this collection is loaded with journaling tags, sentiments, tickets, and artwork. It makes it so easy to put together a beautiful card.
Ok…I took one more photo, propping the card in the sun room window, and it did capture the colors better. I really enjoyed making this romantic roses and keys card. I think it would make a pretty wedding or anniversary card. Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog for your weekly dose of inspiration.
