Now for the real fun.
This first card is just a simple card I made, but it showcases one of the keys and one of my favorite sentiments. I just think it's sweet, but of course I'm biased!
This next card has another one of the keys along with one of the background stamps (you can just barely see it on the black cardstock). I have a hard time deciding on my favorite key, but I think my favorite key you won't see until tomorrow!
I did want to show you how I made the pattered paper piece. The pictures above just really don't show it off. First of all the torn edges are really torn out and I think give it some fun dimension. First I started of with some scrap cardstock and 5 pieces of pattered paper.
Isn't that paper pretty? Next up I tore one edge on each piece except the bottom piece. Also, did you know you can guide the rip? If you are tearing with your left hand use your right thumb to keep the rip going the direction you want by placing it right where you want the rip to go. I think it really helps when you are working with thick paper.
After that's done I just roll the paper on a pencil or pen to make it curl out and glue the top edge!
Thanks for stopping by, and if you missed yesterday's post, I will be releasing Key to My Heart on January 6th and for all comments between now and January 5th at 10 pm eastern, I will give one commenter TWO sets of my new stamp set. One for you and one to giveaway!
Also, if you are interested in the blinkie you can get it from that post as well here. For all of that posted it yesterday seriously THANK YOU. I wish I could give so many of you big hugs. I can't tell you how much your support means!
