I used a background I already had done using my Mega MountTM and Cover-A-CardTM Vines inked with Brilliance Thyme. It was on white cardstock. I applied an old yellow mustard dye inkpad, mounted it on a dark brown cardstock, probabaly Bazzil, then mounted those to the front and left inside. That's the neat part about Cover-A-CardTM. The stamp area is 5.75X5.75 and it fit great here.
I stamped Alesa Baker's CrŠme Cup with Brilliance Galaxy Gold 3 times on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, painted it with Twinkling H2O's Daffodil, Fern, Golden Sand, and Warm Pecan, cut out the layers, and placed them as shown. Glossy Accents was added to the rosettes and leaves.
I ran a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock through the Cuttlebug with Spellbinders Lacey Circles and embossed it. Leaving the die on the scalloped piece, I stamped it with Cover-A-CardTM Wispy inked with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. I painted the scallops with Twinkling H2O's Solar Gold. The image was mounted on the die cut and the 3mm pearls were added with Glossy Accents.
My friend loves big ribbon, so May Arts was taped around the cover and inside and a Bow-Easy bow was added with a little lace, to make it even more feminine. The die cut image was added, along with some leftover buttons with gold sewing thread.
Next I used a stamp from one of Kalani Allred's new friendship sets, True Blue Friend. I inked it with Gold Galaxy, stamped it on white cardstock, put it through the Cuttlebug with one of Spellbinders' Fancy Tags, trimmed it down as shown and used 3mm pearls as embellishments for it.
All this because I didn't get a key chain you ask?? LOL Well, when I did the key chain charm I used the next to largest of Spellbinders Lacey Circles and White Shrink Plastic. I stamped the front with Galaxy Gold and the same image as above. Then I used VersaMark on the edges around it so when I heated it with my heat gun it wouldn't stick to itself. Cleaned off the VersaMark with a soft toothbrush and water, dried it and painted it with Brilliance and Mica Gloss Colors. I heated them to seal and dry and then I applied 2mm pearls and Glossy Accents as a seal and let that dry.
