I have been asked to make a 70th birthday card for a locksmith!! Have to find a humourous verse yet but the outside is done. I took a shape from a spellbinder and cut what I thought was the nearest shape I had to an escutcheon! so I cut one in White and then cut a small circle out with a die. I then manually cut out the bottom bit to make a key hole and stamped with archival ink with a flourish stamp from Clarity and inked around the edge with black soot. I stamped a 70 and silver embossed onto black card then I also cut this out with the die to show the 70 through it .
I cut a strip of white card and randomly stamped some keys and the sentiment I created the background using a background stamp that is all just keys. I used a second generation ink for this.
