Instructions: Create a 7" x 5" card base from white cardstock. Cut a 7" x 5" panel of pink foil cardstock. Glue onto card base. Cut a 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" panel of green paper from the wrought iron gate page of the Floral Key collection. Heavily distress the edges and ink with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. Glue onto card. Cut the 5" x 7" card front from the paper collection. Cut away the outer frame. Use the largest Spellbinders circle die to cut out the inner artwork. Trim around edges if necessary. Ink the cut portion with Shabby Shutters ink. Ink the edges of the die cut image with Versamark and emboss with Stampendous Vintage Olive Embossing Tinsel. Use Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink to stamp the Sentiment above the roses and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Press Victorian Velvet and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink onto a clear acrylic block. Use a detail water brush to pick up the ink and color in the roses and leaves in the image portion of the circle. Paint in the background of the image with these same inks. Gently dry with a heat gun. Spritz with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. Use the same circle die to cut a circle from lightweight chipboard and glue the image onto it. Use the circle again and cut out a piece of tape sheet. Remove the liner from one side and glue onto the back of the chipboard circle. Leave the liner sheet on for now. Use an embossing pen on the flourishes to the right and left hand side of the card front. Emboss with Bridal Embossing Tinsel. Ink the edgs of the frame with Shabby Shutters. Stitch the entire frame onto a 6 1/2" x 4 5/8" piece of pink foil cardstock, following the border lines around the frame. Glue the matted frame onto the card base.

Cut a 16" length of 3" wide green tulle. Fold in half. Sew up the folded edge using a gathering stitch. Pull thread to gather. Remove the liner sheet from the chipboard circle and secure the gathered tulle to the back. Use foam tape to secure to the evacuated portion of the frame. Add Glossy Accents to the roses and leaves. Set aside to dry.

Stamp the heart image from the Journey of Love Keys PreCut Set using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Emboss with UTEE and when the image has cooled, crack the embossed area. Rub Shabby Shutters ink over the heart image and wipe away with a damp towel. Add Pink Nestabling rhinestones around the edge of the heart. Use foam tape to secure the heart to the card as shown in photos. Fold 18" of the green tulle in half and form into a double bow. Glue below the heart image. Die cut the largest Bitty Blossom and shape with the Molding Mat and Tool Kit. Tap the Top with Victorian Velvet ink. Glue into center of tulle bow. Hand cut leaves from printed green paper scraps and glue down. Use adhesive of choice to secure to the card. Cut the ticket from the paper art in the collection. Matte with pink foil cardstock. Spritz with Iridescent gold Glimmer Mist and add to top left hand of the card with foam tape. Add pink rhinestones to the 4 corners of the card.

Matte with Pink Foil Cardstock. Cut a 3 7/8" x 2 1/4" rectangle of scrap white paper. Stamp with HCPC 3323 script stamp and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Heat Dry.
