Musical Notes


Hello dear friends!

My project today is a music card combining elements from the Spellbinders Labels Twenty dies and JustRite Stampers Musical Notes Labels Twenty Set.  Both of these I received as Christmas presents :-)

I knew I wanted to use this black/gold background paper from The Mariposa Matstack.  Both labels were stamped in StazOn Stone Gray and colored with white and metallic gold Prismacolor Pencils.  Edges were sponged in Distressed Antique Linen.  The top label was popped for dimension.

Leaves were cut with a Sizzix die and glued down.  The exotic butterfly is popped up with a few gold pearls to accent.


The crinkle ribbon is just a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding I have altered.  Using my Bow-Easy I created the bow then sprayed the ribbon with some water to dampen (mini mister bottles are great for this).  Next, I sprayed Tsukineko sheer gold shimmer spritz liberally on the ribbon and scrunched it with my hand.  A little messy, but well worth the results!  After I let it dry overnight I glued it to the upper corner.  I love the antique feel with the wrinkles.


The inside was layered with a piece of The Luxury Stack pearl beige paper, Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  I have left it blank for a personal note.
