Key to the Door

Happy Sunday people, where ever are in the World, hope you day will be enjoyable and relaxing.  I've had a busier than usual week this week, so I've been even more tired than usual.  I've been planning on starting my Christmas cards but every time I try, I'm ask to make a card for something or other.  I will get there as I really don't want to be left right to the last minute again.  So hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will share some of my Christmas makes.

Today's card was made for my friends Sons 21st Birthday an easel card.


Crafter's Companion Create a Card - Decadance
Snow White Centura Pearl (with a hint of silver)
Blue Holographic card
Silver Card
Signature Die - Ivy Flourish
Spellbinders - Key Dies
Glitter Girls Score board (Book-a-Trix)
Odd piece of Black card
Black Buttons
21 from my Stash
Oddment of Ribbon
Sentiment Peel Offs
Grand Calibre or Ebosser
Paper Trimmer/Guillotine 
Bone folder
Hougie Board

Using your cutting Machine, Place Centura Pearl (Shiny side up) on the cutting board.  Carefully line up the create a card die with the card, cover with the base plate and pass through the machine.  Centura Pearl is a thicker card and could require more than one pass. Once the card has cut, emboss.  Remove the die and carefully line up again but turn the card over so now you are cutting into the underside.  As the edges of the die do not cut, make sure that the edge of the die is completely in line with the first die Cut.  Pass through as before.
Cut away the excess card. Keep only one of the aperture squares for later use
Line up the Holographic Blue Card with the Centura pearl and adhere. Using a hougie board score at 3 and 6 inches.Fold the card in Half, then fold then fold the front section back on itself, (a reverse gate fold).
Attach the cut out aperture (see photo) to the top of the front of the card
Using the Book-a-Trix score board, Score around the gift Tag on the reverse of the board, score both the larger tag using the Holographic card and the smaller with Centura Pearl.  Cut out carefully along the outside of the embossing.  Attach together, (Top tip - When scoring the larger tag, also score the small tag on the same card,  You know exactly where to line up and attach the smaller tag)
From the silver card, die cut a couple of Keys and an Ivy flourish.
Attach the keys to the Tag with Manly ribbon and adhere the '21' to the centre of the tag.
Adhere the Ivy flourish to the centre square, 
Attach the Key tag to the centre of the square,
Finally, make a stopper using peel offs and a small piece of black card, and attach to the base of the card.
Embellish with the Buttons and the card is complete.

Thank you so much for taking time to visit little old me.  I love sharing my makes with you.  Well until next time, take care, stay happy and safe and above all keep smiling.
