Hi everybody. A music themed birthday card for a lady today, another friend who sings, which is how we met as we were both in the same choir at one time, in fact we sat next to one another. I have used the embossing folder before here, but the music flourish has not been inked before. Both are from a set which came with a Creative Stamping magazine two or three months ago. I decided to try to make a joy fold card which I have attempted once before and as shaped cards go this is easier than some.
I found a freebie paper on line which had music on and in blue and purple, a combination I do love. I used the music embossing folder for the front panel and ink blended with purple for the floral piece at the bottom, and then blue for the music covered top half, using Wilted Violet and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, and cut and adhered this to the front. I then added the piece of music paper to the back of the inside, and the piece of flourishy music I added to the front fold over panel using the Salty Ocean DI heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. This is like a smaller back to front card which is attached to the back panel of the card and then folds over the shortened front piece. The card is a 6" square with the front panel cut to 4", and the fold over piece is approximately 31/2" square.
Thank you for dropping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
