Kanban 'No Place Like Home'

I recently ordered a brilliant new kit from Kanban which was a blockbuster on Create & Craft. It contains love, wedding, baby & celebration toppers & papers covering a wide range of occasions. I know they will be featuring a lot in my posts over the next few months. The first card I have made from the set uses the 'No Place Like Home' topper sheet and I am entering it into the following challenges- Catch the Bug 'Anything Goes', Stampin' for the Weekend 'Something Metal', and Love to Create 'Let's Celebrate'.

I started this card with an A5 scalloped edge card blank which I inked with 'Spun Sugar' distress ink. I then cut a piece of Papermania 'Regency' paper from an A5 paper pad and rounded the corners to match the base card. The 2 toppers came from the Kanban 'No Place Like Home' topper sheet from the new C&C blockbuster. I attached the main topper with 1 layer of 3d foam pads and the smaller message with 2 layers. Before atatching the message topper, I added a Kanban stamped heart, in 'Shabby Shutter' distress ink, to the topper to link the colour to the backing paper. I then chose 3 ribbons in pink, green & brown and attached them to the top of the card, tying a knot to secure them together. I then added a metal key charm from 'CarftyBitz' onto the ribbon and then tied another knot at the base to secure it. I cut the ribbon to different lengths and allowed this to hang free at the base of the card. I completed the card by adding some 'Platinum' stickles glitter glue onto some of the chains on the main topper.
