Music Card

I made this card some time ago as a sample Christmas card, but I loved it so much that I just couldn’t bear to give it away, so it is stashed in a shoebox of my favorite cards. When Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge came up this week to use music in some form on our cards, I knew this card would be just the thing. Stamps used are Background (Rubber Stampede, #3428R, Angel Chorus Collage), Cynthia Hart cherubs (Rubber Stampede, #321-E, Dream Angels) and the tissue paper wings are molded on an Amaco Butterfly/Angel mold. The tissue paper technique can be found at the Club Posh forum. I cut the edges of the layers with decorative scissors, spritzed the corners with water to relax the paper so that I could curl it to look like a scroll and added a little glitter bling when the paper was dry. It’s also been distressed with ink to look vintage. Kinda reminds me of those old Victorian German Christmas ornaments.
