“May the spirit of the season be the melody that plays in your heart all year long.”

So, here we are in August, and since this is my wish for you, why not make this card?


As soon as I received the Musical Season Bundle, I couldn’t wait to die cut the French horn from Copper Foil paper. In fact, this horn and the little drummer boy are the two reasons I HAD to have this bundle. Not to mention, the Merry Music DSP that will coordinate beautifully. 

I decided the background for my French horn would be sheet music, layered on black cardstock with just 1/8″ showing. Brian King, the king of layering, taught me that this tiny bit can pack a big punch. For our traditionalists, I tied and knotted an Emerald Envy ribbon around the bottom, before gluing it to a Very Vanilla card base. I stamped and layered the sentiment the same way, but raised it on dimensionals.  The horn was also raised, since I was able to find enough larger spots for the dimensionals.


Almost finished, but something needed to be blowing out of the horn. I was playing around with sequins when hearts jumped out at me, little, red enamel hearts. Perfect for “the melody that plays in your heart.”


Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate you taking time to pay me a visit!
