Heartfelt Creations - Dream Background Card

Good Afternoon!
My card today is one of my favourites using the Floral Key Collection.  When I sat down to make this card, I was playing around with colours and the background stamp and came up with a black and gold card - quite dramatic for me, but really pleased with the end result!  The image stamps beautifully and I just love all the wording, can be used for so many different occasions.


Card Size: 11cm x 11cm.
Instructions:
Stamp the background image onto black card using Versamark ink and heat emboss using gold powder. Cut down this piece to measure 10cm x 10cm.  Add versamark ink around the edges and heat emboss using gold powder.  Cut a larger piece of black card to measure 10 1/2cm x 10 1/2 cm.  Using the Scor-Pal board, score diagonal lines from each corner to create a background.  Again add Versamark ink around the edges and heat emboss.  Wrap some organza ribbon around the main image and secure on the reverse.  Add the gold twine on top and tie on the reverse. Layer this piece onto the other black card using foam pads. Adhere these to the main card blank using double sided tape.  Stamp the key onto black card using Versamark, but mask out the words 'is in the'. Emboss with gold powder. Die cut the key using the matching die, then trim the key to only use the top part.  Create a bow, add the sentiment using gold cord and glue into place using a hot glue gun.

Thank you for visiting me today,
