Love, the Master Key

I spent some time the other day flipping through magazines and stealing ideas. Today’s valentine is inspired by this card:


I started by pulling from my scraps all the different colors I wanted to use: black, red, white, pink, silver. I got lucky when I came across this quote: “Love is the master key that unlocks the gates of happiness.” I knew then that I could finally unwrap this fantastic key to my heart paper. It took me a while to visualize the end product so I started by making the card from black cardstock.

I started trimming my key paper because I knew I wanted to cut out at least one of the keys and use the backside for the upper left square. I also trimmed some red polka dot paper and began lining things up.

I wanted to use the scalloped edge so I trimmed down and inked the quote square.





I also cut out silver hearts, a key, and trimmed and inked the key background block.


I laid everything out on the card and realized I needed a bit more silver. I pulled out some silver glitter tape and saw that some of it was already punched perfectly for this card! I was finally ready to glue things down.


For the inside of the card, I added pink lined paper for easy writing and a little lock for the key.

Don’t forget about my free valentine offer. If you’d like to send a valentine, comment on which one you’d like and contact me with your name and address.

Cheers! ~Shay
