Sneaky Peek Week "Key Phrases"

Hi all! I have another peek for you today! I love this release so much and I KNOW you are going to love it, too! I literally got my package, sat down that very evening, and made 3 cards. Then got up the next morning, and made 3 more. It is simply THAT good, I tell ya! Todays set is called "Key Phrases."

Here's my card, I used the stamp set, the Heart Toppers CutUp, and the Key to Your Heart CutUps.

I decided to use a literal interpretation of the "A Small Key can open BIG doors" by creating a card that looked like a door. To create the panels on the door, I used the Window CutUp from a previous release. It's very easy to make more than a 4 pane/panel "window" with that die as it's really easy to line up and keep cutting a larger panel. Once the panels on the door were done, I created a decorative gold kick plate at the bottom with a rectangle of gold cardstock and the decorative part of the Heart Toppers. I created the panel to stamp the sentiment on with the other dies in the Heart Toppers set. I added a bit of decoration at the top of my door with the Toppers CutUps from the last release. The doorknob is a decorative brad. 

The key was cut out of the same gold cardstock as the kick plate and dry-embossed. A simple eyelet and some twine make a nice accent at the top of the card.

I hope you like these fun new goodies and my card! I'll be back soon with another great Peek! :)

Hugs, Noelle

Brilliant...stinking brilliant! If the little panels on the door were not enough, you figured out how to do a kick stop too! So cool!
