|I used a 5x7 black card base, vintage music paper, burlap, and some Graphic45 paper (a mat behind the sheet music) to stack up my elements.|
This card was a birthday card for my stepson, who loves music and plays the guitar. I found some vintage sheet music from Karen at The Graphics Fairy, and grunged it up some more with black ink. You can barely see it here. I wish I would have let it show more. I also found some little music quotes from different free online sites, and printed them on cream cardstock, then cut them out and grunged them up with black ink. I used some little Tim Holtz stick pins to poke them into the burlap.
|I left the top of the guitar cutout open to act as a little pocket for these tickets. Another freebie I found at The 80s Me blog. Her blog is darling, and has lots of other neat kinds of tickets. These were music tickets. The piece of "string" is a thread I pulled out of the burlap.|
I found this site when I was searching "google images" for guitar graphics. Google Images is a great place to go when you're looking for something in particular.
The inside of my card uses some more Graphic45 paper at the bottom. The sentiment is one I found online and I used a fancy font that I found at KevinandAmanda.com. I typed the sentiment and then printed it out on cream cardstock and cut the edges with my fancy edged scissors. KevinandAmanda have some awesome fonts.
I also made a little sheet music envelope to hold (of course!) some cash. I used the We Are Memoray Keeps Envelope Punch Board (6x6 piece of paper and 3x4 sized envelope), and made it a look vintage by inking the paper and edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.
By the way, my stepson absolutely LOVED this card! I think it's definitely a guy card. He noticed every little element I used and said he's going to keep it forever! Made me feel really good.
Have you made any masculine cards lately and if so, where can I see them?
