First off, I like to use Christmas paper year round. I mean, would you have known this was from a Christmas pad? Be sure to look at your supplies and get the most use out of them that you can! I am sure there are many of you that also do this! Here is the paper pad that I used (Webster's Pages It's Christmas - on sale for $3!):
I LOVE the fact that the sheets are loose and not bound together, that they are heavier cardstock weight, and double-sided! Sharon has MANY Webster's Pages patterns in the store here.
I stamped my sentiment and keys (JustRite Clear Stamp - Antique Valentine Tags One - also on sale!) with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I attached my beautiful Red Wrinkled Edge Sheer Ribbon (LOVE it! SO many colors available) and tied around the front panel with a big bow. The hearts were cut using Spellbinders Classic Heart dies. Finally I used a piece of Tim Holtz grungeboard (similar to pliable chipboard) in a key hole shape and embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder. I colored it red and stamped with VersaMark watermark ink prior to embossing. Sharon carries a beautiful selection of chipboard here.
A little bling with Red Rhinestones (Kaisercraft) finish the project.
My adhesives are 1/8" and 1/2" Scor-Tape, Scrapbook Adhesives-3L E-Z Runner and Thermoweb 3D Foam Squares
