Issue 90 papercraft essentials

I'm often guilty of buying a magazine because of the freebies and then not using them! Along with a few bits and pieces from my own stash, I've used the free Woodware stamps and papers from this months papercraft essentials.

Playing with mega flakes and flitterglu!

I seem to struggle for ideas when it comes to making cards for men but I was playing with Flitter Glu and Lancashire Rose Mega flakes by Indigo Blue and came up with this one! The gilding effect isn't quite as bright as it looks in the pic and I wouldn't use it again with this particular stamp!!   I stamped the background using Kaiser Crafts 'keys' stamp and Adirondack felt dye pad 'latte'. The larger key is a real one! I do know that it doesn't fit anything my family owns! The other keys/keepers are brads from my stash.
