Hello Stamping Friends, (click on the little SAL to go to the blog instead of just this post)
Did you squeal with delight when you saw the Musical Season bundle on page 25 of the holiday catalog?
I wanted to use all the instruments, the greetings and the treble clef so after a bit of thought I came up with this:
The ‘Peace-Joy-Love’ is not glitter. It is black embossed and caught the flash of the camera. In real life it is shiny embossed black. The lute is silver embossed on black paper and the harp is copper embossed on black paper and each are cut out with the framelits. The detail of the instruments embossed beautifully. The french horn is cut out of gold foil paper and adhered to a basic black cut out of the same. Our metallic sequins #144214 have copper, gold and silver so I could use a sequin of each color next to the instrument it matched.
The base is Thick Whisper White 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″
The Basic Black is 10 1/2″ X 4 scored at 5 1/4″ But – DO NOT BEND the score line until after you cut down 1 1/2″ from the top. Fussy cut around each instrument ending at the 1 1/2″ cut from the top.
Merry Music Specialty Designer Paper #144623 (page 13 of the Holiday Catalog): 3 3/4″ X 5″
If you have a large acrylic block you can mount both greetings on the block, stamp in Versa Mark and emboss with black embossing powder.
Gold Foil for french horn – 2 1/2″ X 3 1/4″
Gold Foil strip for left hand side – 4″ X 1/4″
Basic Black backing for the horn – 2 3/4″ X 3 1/2″
Basic Black Strip for the lute – 1 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ Emboss in Silver
Basic Black Strip for the harp – 1 12″ X 3″ Emboss in Copper
Basic Black for the treble clef – 2 1/4″ X 1″
Simple yet perfectly stunning for all your music loving friends’ Christmas cards.
