Keys To My Heart Card with The Buckle Boutique


     It is challenge time at Decorate To Celebrate!  Check out their website for great projects to celebrate your next occasion:   DTC blog.  While I was working on some cards to celebrate a friend's wedding anniversary, old school Madonna was playing on my IPOD.  "Open Your Heart" was playing and the line:  "I hold the lock and you hold the key" inspired me.  I had some old keys in my stash and with some rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique I had my idea!


    The rhinestone sticker sheets are easy to use and apply.  And you can use some leftover scraps from a previous project.  Simply place your key (or any other object you are using) onto the back of the sticker sheet and cut out.  I don't have any die cut machines, but I love my non stick scissors from Westcott.  You will need to use just the points of the scissors for the little spots to try and cut it out as closely as you can.

    For the middle of the key, I took a T pin and cut holes so I could simply bend back or remove the sticker sheets from this small area.

    To build your card choose papers that complement each other.  My handwriting is not the best so I love to use rub on transfers like we had as kids.

    I like the play of the "golden" keys against silver and black.  Cover your blank card stock with your background paper.

    Using another paper, glue your keys against them and place on the card.  For this example, I liked the off center look but place wherever you like.

    Create your wording with the rub on transfers.  Then cut out and place on your card.

     Add some more embellishments with your sticker sheets and that's it.  You have a fun custom card that would be great for an anniversary, wedding, engagement, etc.

Happy Crafting!
