Back from hols with a card using my sizzix stash

hi fellow bloggers
I am now back from my hols in sunny espana -wish I was still there really!!:) Still back to my craft room and onward with the stash attack. This card is made using a sizzix bigz die and one of their valentine embossing folders and I am showing the stages rather than just the finished card. I am not sure if I will do this for each card but thought I would try it out.
The die and embossing folder used are: -

I cut out the heart locket in black card and red craft foam

The card is a 6" square card and I embossed the right hand side with the hearts from the embossing folder and used a heart shape template to ink a heart background with a hero arts shadow stamp in pale grey as it gives a very subtle tint. The envelope flap was also embossed.

The key was cut out from black card and embossed using versamark ink and silver embossing folder to resemble a metal charm and the ribbons are red and white organza to die in with the colour scheme
The red heart is the waste from the heart when cut out.

The final card~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am entering it into the following challenges: -
