My grandson plays the bass guitar, so this musical birthday card is perfect for him. The guitar (Epic Celebrations stamp set) is the first thing I created for this collage. I stamped it in Basic Black Ink on Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and added Versamark to make it shine. After fussy cutting, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Hexagon Embossing Folder. It’s quite an instrument!
The words, “celebrate” and “you” are from the Celebrate You Die Set. The Sheet Music Background Stamp made the paper I used for cutting the words.
The card base is Thick Whisper White, layered with Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock that I embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing folder.
I used two Stitched Shapes dies to cut one square from Wood Textures DSP, and one square from Tutti-Frutti DSP. The Treble Clef is from the Musical Seasons Die Set, and cut from Silver Foil.
I glued the strand of Silver Sequin Trim to the Cherry Cobbler layer, before gluing everything else down. The three Cherry Cobbler, Enamel Shape Stars were the final touch.
This will be my entry for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I chose the middle row down: Metallic (treble clef and Silver Sequin Trim,) Stripes (Simple Stripes embossing,) Free (everything else.)
For the inside, I repeated the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. And, I cut more musical words from Sheet Music with the Happy Birthday Die. I dotted the “i” with a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Dot.
At the last minute, I decided to add a piece of Cherry Cobbler DSP to the envelope flap, so it’ll be ready to mail.
I had fun making this musical Birthday Card for my grandson. I hope you enjoyed my process!
