Today I’m sharing a music card using KLM Digital Design – Keyboard Gnome from the new March release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Turn up the volume close your eyes and let the music take over your soul” and “Music is the voice of the soul”. No words were truer spoken, music is all around us and there is something out there for everyone to listen to!
Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 5.5″ card base. Anna Griffin – Musical Cardstock & Vellum paper was cut to the same size as the base card. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I inked around all of the edges and then adhered it to the base card with double-sided tape. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was die cut 5 times using my Cuttlebug and Joy! Crafts – Cutting and Embossing Dance to the Music die. Using liquid glue, I applied each layer on top of each other and then glued it to the bottom of the card base.
The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and fussy cut around it and the sentiment. The edges of the image were inked around with a black marker and the sentiments were adhered onto Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock and then fussy cut again.
The card was now ready to assemble. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided pop-up tape to the backs of the sentiments and image and then popped up all of the pieces onto the card to complete it.
