Treasure Your Day

Hello blog friends,

A colleague asked me to make a birthday card for the organist of  their church. The requirements: the card must be for a male and definitely with a musical theme. Not good at making male cards I decided to keep it as simple as possible but still with a vintage feel. I used a sheet music image from The Graphics Fairy embellished with a G clef chipboard as my main focus point of the card. The postage sentiment from Whimsy stamps with the Victorian couple fits the musical theme so well and I just had to add it. The crown is cut from another sheet music cover from The Graphics Fairy. A few black pearls brings the crown to life and I popped it on mirror tape for dimension on the card. My favorite paper roses have to step back for three autumn leaves on this card. Hope you like this “minimalistic” creation!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

GF_MusicThe sentiment and crown

GF_Music1The autumn leaves

GF_Music2A peep at the inside embellished with a music note

GF_Music3Project details:

  • White cardstock
  • Designer paper from 7Gypsies and Melissa Francis
  • Sheet music cover and crown image from The Graphics Fairy
  • Whimsy sentiment stamp “Birthday postage sentiment stamp set”
  • Pearls
  • Paper leaves
  • Chipboard G clef music note
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Vintage photo”

Thanks for stopping by today. I love to read your comments and  appreciate everyone  so much. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Amelia

    Hi, Amelia, dit is nou regtig mooi , hoor!! Ek is absoluut mal oor musiek so jou kaartjie spreek my hart aan!! Die orrelis gaan mal wees daaroor!! Jy het so goed gedoen om dit ‘n lekker masculine gevoel saam met die vintage te gee (die masculine kaartjies is mos altyd die moeilikes om te maak!) Ek hou daarvan dat jou uitleg redelik eenvoudig is, maar daar is tog nog steeds lekker detail om te waardeer.
    Baie groete uit ‘n lekker warm George!

    This is so pretty. I love the vintage/rustic look it has and the leaves add just enough of a pop of color to keep it interesting. Wonderful job. Thanks for sharing at Craft Your Passion!
