Previously I shared this fall/Thanksgiving themed card, that is based on the same sketch that I used here. The stamped greeting panel is a bit bigger on this card, but I think that you can easily see how both of them start from the same “place”. That is the beauty of using sketches – they take the struggle to design a layout out of the process, and the finished results can look quite different based on the colors, stamps and other elements that you use in your design.
This is the sketch that I followed for this card design. I added a layer for the pretty music patterned paper, but I think you can still readily see this sketch in the finished product. The G-Clef die cut stands in for the little oval that hangs below the center rectangle. I used the go-juss new Champagne Foil paper for that element. I definitely encourage you to check it out along with other great products in the Holiday catalog. I also have to put in a plug for the pretty DSP that I used on this card. This is thinner paper than our usual DSP, which still works great for card making (in fact, it lightens the card a tiny bit). The best part is that you get 4 sheets of each design, so you can really go to town mass-producing cards with this great paper.
You can’t see it from the photo, but I also stamped a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card to carry the music theme to the inside. I also decorated that same panel with some of the beautiful Year of Cheer washi tape that coordinates very nicely with the Champagne foil element on the front.
