The patterned paper fit both of my challenges - heritage and swirl. The paper looks aged when you see it up close, as if the paper was distressed. When I think of heritage designs, I often think of old keys. That led me to use my Cricut Sophisticated Cartridge. To create the keyhole background, I layered cream, bronze glitter (DCWV), and then The Paper Company's, White with Gold Bead paper. To contrast the colors, I cut the key from black glitter paper (DCWV). Finally, I popped each layer for extra dimension (three layers popped total). Lots of bling on this card, but it is totally worth it.
I should just leave this card alone. It is, after all, finished, but I can't help thinking that some Jim Holtz steampunk embellishments would be perfect on this card. Which begs the question, are projects ever done?
