Key To My Heart

I said a while ago that I find stamping difficult, but would give it a go at least once a month …. well the time has come …..
The idea for this card came to me as I was making something else ……. I am terrible for getting side tracked!
The stamp I used  was part of a free gift from a craft magazine last year that I hadn’t  never even opened until today.
I stamped onto red card with black StazOn ink, which dries really quickly.
I cut out the heart and wrapped thin fuse wire round the top  corner. I then took the wire down the back of the heart and fastened a key charm (from a charm bracelet) onto it.
I then stuck it straight onto the card, no mat and layering – I must be sickening for something!
Some magazine free gifts are brilliant – some are a bit pants!
Picture 109
After I finished the card I tried stamping with the StazOn onto mirror card – well impressed – I see another card in the making.

Hi Helen

I like the simplicity of this card. There are so many valentines cards out there, I'm edging towards the simplistic and your idea would fit the bill - although I might have to sneek a little bit of cuttlebugging in!!!

Oh - thanks for your visit to the shops earlier - it's saved me a job tee hee x x x

I struggly with stamping too - I never seem to be able to get a nice crisp image.

I love this card and am also liking the simplicity and cleaness of it.
