Hello my crafty friends!! It seems like forever that I've been able to do a blog post. It is that time of year again for music shows and this time I was director! This past month I put together a promotional concert with 4 bands for the Commercial Music Department at the college I teach at. It was so much fun and SO much work but I am hopeful that it will pay off. The Arts are getting lost in the schools with so many cutbacks and it was my goal to remind the student's and the community of all the wonderful courses we have to offer. Two and a half more weeks of classes, final recitals and 1 more performance and it will be summer break for me! Yay!
Today I am sharing a card I designed for my accompanist's birthday. I've seen a bunch of piano cards covered in flowers on Pinterest... I wanted to create a masculine version. I couldn't find an SVG so I decided to design my own in Design Space.
The card stands 6 inches tall and is about 5 inches wide. The "celebrate" is a die from My Creative Time and I did a double layer using silver cardstock and glittery gold. The leaves are from my Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I cut them both out using vellum but when I glued them down the glue was too obvious so I added a layer of metallic silver Wink of Luna and then a layer of clear Wink of Stella.
I couldn't resist adding the Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. In the end I think the design is suitable for both male and female. The card opens up and I did add a white layer of cardstock to stamp my sentiment and write my message. I am happy with how this turned out and plan on making a few more... maybe in different colors and maybe use some flowers next time.
Thank you so much for hopping by! I hope to get back to my usual craftiness once all my end of the semester duties are over :)
I will participate in the following challenges:
