A Capella - Card

One of my favorite paper patterns is music sheet. I am not a musician, even though I use to play the clarinet while in elementary and junior high and enjoyed it until I got a band director I didn't care for and then I quit. Oddly enough my parents weren't upset about me quitting, I think they enjoyed having the peace and quiet of not listening me to practice an hour to an hour and a half a day. They would make me go outside and practice my clarinet.

Oh the card...yeah I made this one last week and it is one that just kinda came about because of the paper.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expressions
Cricut Quarter Note cart
Paper Studio Music Sheet
Stampin Up Pattern Paper
Stampin Up Cardstock
Prism Cardstock
Metallic Cardstock
Cat Eye Chalk Inks
Hallmark Studio

I came up with the sentiment on my own since I wanted something that went with the theme of the card. I used Hallmark Studio to make the sentiment and used two different fonts, which ones I used I just don't remember off hand. I added a piece of scrap Music Sheet paper to the inside since I had some strips and I think it really made the inside look elegant as the front of the card.

I wanted to show you the metallic cardstock and how well it looks so I took this close up picture. It is a shiny finish and to be honest I don't remember where I got it, but I think at one of the stamp garage sales. I really liked it for the sentiment and swirl on the music note because it stood out nicely against the papers and colors.

This is one of those cards I really wish you could see in person. It's a lot more elegant and polished looking in person.

 Would love to keep typing but I got chit to do today! I wanna get some layouts done of some pictures I found of my daughter when she was in first grade and I also am going to make tacos for my daughter and her friend this afternoon.
