Anything to do with music

Red music H2O This week’s challenge is to put “Any thing to do with music” on you card.  I don’t have any die sets that would work for this challenge so I turned to my Silhouette cutting machine.  Sure enough the Silhouette store had this perfect background for this challenge.

The Steps:

Step 1:  I cut the black background.  I also cut the black and white nesting hearts from a Silhouette file.

Step 2:  I used an Elizabeth Craft Designs die set for the words “Love You”: It’s called 1269 – Love Sentiments

Step 3:  The card measures 5.25 x 5.25″.  Score an 8.5′ x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″ on the long side.  Fold over as a tent fold and trim to the finished size.

Step 4:  Cut a square from red cardstock that measures 5″ x 5″.  Adhere it to the front of the base card, leaving a quarter inch border on all sides.

Step 5:  I cut a black larger scalloped heart and a smaller white heart (also a Silhouette file).  I added a little red PanPastel to the white heart.  Next add the sentiment “Love You”  Add this to the card as shown, because it allows more of the background to me seen where the music notes are.

That’s It!

As always, I really appreciate you stopping by to have a look!
