So Cherished Old World Card

Hello, Charlotte here and I am sharing how to make this Old World card.  I wanted to create a card that was more masculine with an Old World flare.  For this project, I used Piccolo Enamel Powders and the Lock and Keys Card and Decor and More chipboard.

Cut a sheet of cardstock to 8"X6"
Antique the paper's surface by applying a thin layer of dye Ink using a blending tool. Lightly cover the entire surface of the paper.  Cut two additional strips of 8"X3" coordinating paper.
If you want to create a distressed look, use an open flame to burn all the edges of the 3"X8"paper strips. 

Brush a thin layer of Piccolo Enamel Powder Adhesive on a vintage script stamp with a
brush. Randomly stamp the vintage image on the strips of 8"x3"paper. Sprinkle with Piccolo Fine Black Enamel Powder. If you are using a tidy tray, gently tap the corner of the paper on the tray to remove all the excess enamel powder. A folded piece of paper works just a well. If any stray bits of enamel powder still remain on the surrounding image, use a small paint brush to gently remove the stray enamel powder. Holding a heat gun approximately six inches from the paper, sweep backwards and forwards until the Piccolo Fine Black Enamel Powder starts melting. Do not over heat the image with the heat gun because the enamel powder will burn.

Continue to stamp complementary images randomly on the two strips of "distressed burned" card stock using the same steps listed above. When all of the Piccolo Enamel Powder stamped images are cool, antique the paper's surface by applying a thin layer of dye Ink using a blending tool. Lightly cover the entire surface of the paper. Distress the edges of the strips with brown dye ink. Set the strips aside and move to the next step.

Apply a coat of the Piccolo Embossing Powder Adhesive to the front of the Piccolo Vintage Lock and Keys Card Decor and More Chipboard.
Immediately after applying the adhesive, sprinkle Piccolo Vintage Copper Enamel Powder over the entire surface of the lock and emboss with a heat tool.  While the enamel powder is hot, press a design into the warm enamel powder. (I used a rubber stamp) When the enamel powder cools, cover the entire surface of the lock with permanent black dye ink. Gently rub the surface of the lock with a cloth to remove the surface ink. The ink will remain in the recessed areas, giving the lock a vintage feel.   Glue a rhinestone gem in the upper middle section of the lock.

Glue the two 3"X8" strips of decorated card stock on each side of the 8"x6" piece of paper.  Glue the lock in the opening in the center of the card.
Add any embellishments, I added a metal key, clock face and a chipboard sentiment. Place a piece of black card stock matte behind the 6X8 " design.  Next, tear the paper on the edges of the black mat.
Cut a coordinating piece of 7"x9" card stock. Aggressively run a paper distressing tool over the edges of the 7"X9" card stock. Once the edges have been distressed with the tool, ink the edges with brown dye ink. Adhere the 7"X9" design to a piece of 7.5"X9.5" black card stock.
