Key 18th Birthday card

This is my DT project for the challenge of at movingalongwiththetimes.

I have matt and layered a scalloped 8x8in white card with purple card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I attached the embossed paper to the bottom half of my card. I attached crochet embellishment across the centre of my card. I bought the silver key embellishment from Home Bargains, I attached that to my card with hot glue and then added flowers. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut with a Presscut oval die from a nesting set. I then used the next size in the nesting set to cut a purple and then likewise for a another white oval. I attached these to my card. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
