Good morning, friends, and welcome for more post-release inspiration from Papertrey Ink! The new products are all available on the website, so you can pick them up right now! This morning I'm sharing a project with Betsy's new set, Sing A Song Of Christmas. This is a wonderful set full of beautifully illustrated instruments and festive song lyrics. There are many music lovers in my life and I can imagine this set being perfect for creating their holiday cards. Let's take a closer look!
I began by using the individual musical notes to stamp a tone-on-tone background pattern on a Pure Poppy card base. Next, I die cut a focal panel using the Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical die. I very lightly sponged it with Aqua Mist and then stamped my sentiment in Pure Poppy.
Then, I die cut a second Curve Vertical panel, this time from White Adhesive Sheets with the sticky side up (though still covered by the backing paper). I peeled off the paper and adhered it to the back of my focal panel, leaving just about an 1/8" peeking out from the underside.
Then, I sprinkled Sterling silver glitter on the exposed adhesive. That gave me a sparkly, glittered mat! I adhered that entire piece to the card front with foam adhesive. Next, I stamped and die cut the fiddle using Green Parakeet, New Leaf, and Smokey Shadow inks. I adhered that to the left of the sentiment, overhanging the curved bottom edge just a bit.
I die cut three of the bow shapes and stamped the top one before layering them together and adhering them to the fiddle. I wanted to tie the silver in a bit more, so I used a fine-tip glue pen to add glitter to the center to each of the stamped snowflakes. This card just makes me so happy!
