My starting point for this card was the topper of the romantic couple from the Passion for Fashion CD. I wanted to work with a red/black and grey colour palette to pick out the colours in the topper. I used the Femme Fatale CD for the backing paper and for the sentiment backgrounds.
I used scraps of glitter paper in my stash and cut the flourishes using Marianne creatables dies. The Key was liberated from a necklace I picked up in a high street fashion store. More scraps of glitter paper was used to cut the keyhole. I used one of the keyhole stamp from the urban stamp range by papermania and stamped the design on the rear of the red glitter card and cut it out before turning over to leave the glittered side showing and mounting it on black glitter card.
I printed the sentiments onto the backing paper using my computer and then cut these using the large label dies from x cut.
The flowers were cut from the black lace backing paper on the Femme Fatale CD and I cut individual flowers out and highlighted them using black ultra fine glitter and shaped then using a ball tool and an embossing pad.
It took me a while to juggle all the elements to come up with a composition I was happy with.
