Paper Chain Gang Challenge #015 Music card featuring Best Birds

The Paper Chain Gang Challenge is back this week with a theme challenge to make a card with “music”. My love of birds led me to design a card featuring a bird. The Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog has a lovely set of Designer Series Paper (DSP) that features sheet music, and thus, my card idea was born.

The set of designer paper is called “This Christmas” and features many beautiful holiday images with vanilla, red and greens. I created the oval cut out in the center of the card by using the Layering Ovals Framelits dies after I had fortified the DSP onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. This paper needed some help in keeping soldier straight to hold up my little bird. Inside the oval I used VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder to add the simple sentiment. I sponged the music paper a bit to give it a weathered look.

The bird is stamped using Basic Gray Archival Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored the image using my Water Brush and ink pads. After he dried, I cut him out on the Big Shot and placed him adjacent to the oval frame.

To tie in the gold embossing to the card details, I added a generous spot of gold glitter glue to the center of the flowers and next to the dark dots. Once dried, this was a nice bit of twinkle, without taking the eye away from the bird and sentiment.

I have used these supplies today to create my card:

Head on over to the Facebook page for the Paper Chain Gang Challenge and join in the fun of making a challenge card. How can you interpret music on a card? Maybe a little bird will help you as he helped me.

Let’s make it together ­čÖé
