Key To My Heart

Have you ever started making a card and then right from the beginning you know it's going to be a challenge? That's what happened while making this one. I love this duplex cardstock because it has a nice feel to it. However, you have to be very careful when folding your card and using your bone folder. I don't recommend using a scorer with this paper either. After I had the card ready to go I noticed a few bumps on my fold. I didn't want to waste the paper (I hate doing that!), so I inked the edges and lo and behold it worked magic! I liked how it looked, so I went ahead and inked around the heart also. After I had the whole card put together, I think the black edging gave it a more dramatic look. I also didn't think the card even needed a sentiment. It's become one of my favorites of all the Valentine ones I've made so far.

The black ink does make the card look more elegant! Love the pearls on the heart and the black key.
