Oh it's a wonderful thing when you have a little time and you can make a few cards right? You get into that zone and you make stuff you like :-)
So today I have a card that came together so nicely for me and I love it. I think I shall make a few more of these. I was looking around for some sheet music online - something Christmas-sy (is that a word?). I do have some vintage sheet music in my stash but not Christmas. I found it in no time (isn't the internet a wonderful thing?)and printed some up and here's what I did with it.
I used Papertrey Ink's In the Meadow stamp set & dies for the sentiment and sleigh, some of their Scarlett Jewel cardstock and patterned paper. I'm not sure if you can see it but I used some Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink to distress around the edges of the music sheet (even though it was a lovely aged yellow right off my printer it needed the edges darkened up). I adhered the sleigh with pop dots. Then I took a long look and decided it needed perhaps some ribbon? Nah.. then I knew what would finish it off - some german scrap I had in my stash. I do so wish there was a die for that! LOL It's similar to a rick rack or a pinked edge but that really isn't the look I was going for - and that german scrap is embossed with the lovliest beading detail yaknow? So there you have it - sortofa clean and simple vintage card. I'm gonna try a few more of this type card with some more of the stamps/dies in that set.
Have a lovely day!
