A number of background stamps are on the retiring list and stocks are only guaranteed until May 24th. One of them is Sheet Music. I’ve really enjoyed having this image around as it works for so many occasions. Of course I like playing with words so it should come as no surprise that my final project using the Sheet Music Stamp should be a ‘Note Card’.
I began my project with the Mint Macaron ombre design from the retiring Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes. Then using Gray Granite ink I stamped the Sheet Music image over the front letting it fade a little towards the edges.
Next, I opened up the card and masked off all but a 3/4″ strip down the right-hand edge. Then I stamped Sheet Music in the strip.
Finally I masked off all but about a 1″ strip down the right-hand side on the front of the envelope. Then, you’ve guessed it, I stamped the Sheet Music there too.
JUST A NOTE
That just left the sentiment from the retiring Better Together Stamp Set.
I found a 1/4″ strip of Very Vanilla Card in my scrap tin and stamped the sentiment using Gray Granite ink. Then I trimmed it down to 3-1/2″ wide.
Next from my scraps I pulled out some Mint Macaron Card. I wanted to create a fancy edge for the sentiment strip using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch which creates a ribbon-like strip. I decided to have the small scalloped edge showing rather than the more fancy edge. Once I’d punched two strips, I attached them to the back of my sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow).
Finally I fixed my sentiment to the front of the note card with more liquid glue and I was done.
These note cards were really quick and easy to create, and they’d make a great gift, don’t you think?
Here’s a couple of other blog posts with projects featuring the Sheet Music Stamp Set.
