Hello and welcome...
Today's card was made for a dear friend of ours who loves playing his guitar
Today is his birthday and I thought this to be a fitting card for him
  • I started with a white 8" square card ~ my stash
  • from my files I printed the 3 musical images ~ my stash
  • I used an oval die to cut and emboss the musical notes and circular die for the guitar ~ dies by Sue Wilson for CE
  • the coloured musical notes were 'fussy' cut
  • I typed the sentiment and die cut and embossed  it using one of the pierced square dies by SW
  • I kept the sentiment in the die and using a smoothie ~ Creative Expressions,  and without adding extra ink, I gently coloured around the sentiment
  • I used other pre-inked smoothies to add a little colour around the other die cuts
  • The sentiment had mounting foam added to the back for dimension, all other elements were adhered, flat,  to the card using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue
From my stash I added sheet music to the inside of the card and my verse was die cut then adhered to the inside as shown below
 To complete I stamped, very lightly, sheet music to the envelope
