Couture Creations Endless Dreams!

Hi, Kerrie Gurney here for CropStop!

Today I am using the fun key decorative dies from the Couture Creations Endless Dreams Collection.

You can use keys on so many projects,  I thought I would do a quick card that can be used for any occasion.

Cut base card 12" x 5" and fold in half, cut a piece of patterned paper 5 3/8" x 4 3/8" 

Die cut a heart using Core'dinations Cellar Door Whitewash Cardstock and Couture Creations Heart Nesting Dies and emboss the heart using Couture Creations Extra Loren Embossing Folder. Gently sand the heart revealing the blue core colour

Die cut one each of the key dies in grey cardstock  using the Couture Creations Key Dies - Aladdin, Baroque, and Key to My Heart, and paper strips measuring 1 x 7" x 1.5" patterned paper, 1 x 4.5" x 1 3/8" grey cardstock, 1 x 5 1/4" whitewash cardstock 

Distress all the edges using your scissors or distressing tool

Die cut another 1 of the Key to My Heart dies, you will just use the heart shape from the center of both dies

Layer all the pieces onto the base card using foam tape on the grey strip to add some dimension to the card
Tie the keys together using silver cord.

Use foam tape behind your heart accents, finish off by adding some Couture Creations Crystal Gemstones.
