I love this card, I definitely wanted to make a music themed card for my brother in laws birthday. Little snippets of ideas formed in my head over a week long period till I decided my plan of action.
I don’t have any DP that is a music sheet so I decided to make my own. I printed off a music sheet of Happy Birthday for piano? I could not find one with lyrics attached. I wanted the paper to look aged so I soaked the whole thing in tea, the first time I did that I only soaked it for a short period as I did not want the paper to fall apart. I used my embossing heat tool to dry it to give it a roughed up look. I did not think it was dark enough so the second time around I used a wet tea bag (Thank you Celestial Seasonings Tea – Morning Thunder) and ran it randomly over the paper, this time after it dried it worked perfect. I then sponged the edges with a few shades brown ink to give it a more aged look.
I did not want to take away from my proudly created DP so I left the adornments down to a simple ribbon with a gold filament in it. I had such fun making this card.
Have a Fabulous Birthday Miles!!
