Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Good morning everyone! How are you all? I am guessing you are all in the swing of the Christmas shopping and last minute card making:).....Me? I haven't really started:( Christmas trees and decorations are all up though so it is feeling really festive:) I will post a picture of my take on winter wonderland maybe tomorrow or Friday. What colour do you all think my theme is? Hehe I am sure many of you will probably guess right:)
So any way on to my Heartfelt Creations card for today. As always do hop on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog for lot's of inspiring projects...there are some stunning creations:) You will also find details on a cash giveaway......don't miss out:)
I have gone for a clean elegant look for my card today in luscious creams and black using the floral Key stamps:

Begin with a 7”x7” black card blank.  Next stamp the heart from the Journey of Love pre cut set onto cream card using black Archival Ink twice. Die cut them out using the Timeless Amour Heart die. (You can put the outer decorative part of the hearts aside for another project). Die cut the Timeless Amour hearts out twice in black card. This time you need the outer decorative hearts.  Stamp the sentiment from the Journey of Love Keys pre cut set onto cream card and die cut out using the Gold Labels Four die and layer up onto the Labels four die, cut out in black card.  Die cut the Posy Patch flowers and stamp with the matching stamp to make one layered flower. Die cut the keys and locks out with the Burnished key die onto some black card and also cream card.....The ones you don’t require you can use on another project.( As I required only a couple I cut them out and took the die to the stamp and some I didn’t stamp, so I found this easier).
I used embossing ink and powder on the lock and the heart lock. I didn’t stamp the smaller keys.
Die cut the Fancy Lattice in cream card and mat this onto some black card with a small border. Take a piece of cream card measuring 6 ¾” square and mat this onto the black card blank. Stamp the keys from the Keys and Roses pre cut set on the bottom of the card as in picture.  Adhere some lace from the back of the Fancy Lattice mat that you made earlier and adhere this to the top of the card. Assemble the hearts and the sentiment mats as in picture.  Adhere the flower and 2 small keys to the bottom of the right hand side heart.  Adhere the lock to the centre of the Roses and Keys which you stamped onto the bottom of the card earlier. To finish of the card add some of the Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels – White Ice.

I will be back tomorrow to share another card.....ummmm and my exciting news is coming in the next few days:)
