Valentine Heart Bezel Card With Bonus Key Ring


Hello blogging friends!  Today, I have another Valentine card to share with you and it has an added bonus.


This is the card that I designed using papers from DiscountCardstock.com and beautiful die templates from Spellbinders Creative Arts™.  I used the New S6-005 5 x 7 Elegant Labels Four die template that is part of the Card Creator collection.  I also used S5-158 Timeless Rectangles die template and MB2-006 Hearts Two Bronze bezel from the New Media Mixáge collection.


For the bezel I sprinkled in some dark pink glitter and then I added ICE Resin® and set the piece aside for about 8 hours to let the resin set up and harden.  Next I added the rhinestone chain around the outer edge of the heart and added the heart locket charm to the center of the resin heart.  Then I added a jump ring and a key charm on the bottom.  I think this makes a beautiful embellishment for the card but I wanted to be able to remove the bezel and added it to a key clip creating a key chain for the extra bonus.  So I used a piece of Texture Two-Tone Fuchsia/Pink ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and tied it around two of the die cuts and then added the bezel.  I didn't want to have a fancy bow, just something that would be easy to re-tie so the card would still be pretty even after the bezel was removed.  I added a small baggie to the back of the card with a key ring.


I stamped a hidden sentiment under the bezel using CR-04325 Antique Valentine Tags One stamp set from JustRite Papercraft.  Once the bezel is removed you will be able to see the sentiment and the card won't be left with a blank space.


I also added some pink Recollections bling, pink roses and dark pink rose buds from I am Roses and a couple of white/pink porcelain roses.


I added 3D Foam Squares  from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L in between the label layers to add more dimension to the card.


Thank you so much for stopping by today!

I hope you have a Fantastic Day!!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi
