    I made this card today for a friend who is moving into her first house in a few weeks.

    I used a stock white card and went to town on it.

    First I painted it with copper paint. Then I cut out the shapes under the letters, inked all the edges, then glued them down. Then I took some white foam letters I bought at the Dollar store and painted them with the same copper paint. Then I cut out the key shape with my wishblade (I had previously designed the key) 6 times and glued them all together. Then I put 4 coats of UTEE on it and painted it silver then dabbed on more of the copper paint. Then I decided on the size cut outs to go under it, cut them out, inked all the edges, then glued those down. Then I used 2 copper eyelets and tied the key on with some brown eyelash yarn.

    Oh, I used my Fiskars Shate Express for the square and rectangle cuts.
    Thanks for looking!

    PS If anyone wants directions on how to make the key, just ask! ( I FOUND it! I used paint instead of the perfect pearls, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whzuoc1PQq4 )I saw a demo for it on YouTube, but I can't remember who it was, but it was really easy. And I'll share my GSD to anyone too, just PM me with your email addy.

    WOW girl - that's absolutely stunning. I would love to have the pattern for the key, but since I don't have a wishblade, guess it wouldn't do any good. Love the card!

    What a beautiful card. She will treasure it I am sure. I would frame it and use it as part of a wall grouping.
