Musical Christmas- Three in One!
Thank goodness it is Friday! I decided to sneak in a card at the last minute for the PP66 Musical Theme at The Paper Players (love those Paper Player “gals” :-)) and used the ColourQ CQC105 colors (another one of my favorite weekly challenges) along with the FMS5 sketch at a new favorite sketch challenge site, Freshly MadeSketches.
Since this was a musical theme challenge, I decided to pull out some of my retired sets (and give them some “love’” :-)).
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ and emboss a piece of Wisteria Wonder with the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (only two thirds of the way down to leave a smooth area for the sentiment).
Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static the Whisper White cardstock and with Versamark®ink, stamp the Musical Score background stamp and the main focal image (from Musical Medley). Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Basic Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Once the embossing powder has cooled, color with Stampin’ Write markers in Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder.
Trim and mount the musical background onto Basic Black. Punch out the focal image with the 2 ½” Circle Punch and behind the focal image, layer another circle from the same punch using Wisteria Wonder cardstock (cut the circle in half and angle so the cut edges do not show). Layer the entire focal image onto a Basic Black circle from the 3” Originals™ Circle Die.
De-static and stamp the sentiment in the same manner as described above. Layer a piece of 5/8" Basic Black Satin Ribbon over the embossed “line” (where the smooth cardstock meets the embossing) and add all of the other layers as per the sketch. Adhere the 5/8" Basic Black Satin bow, Antique Brad and layer all onto a Basic Black card front to finish off the card.
