More About Music


So here the complete set that was made for my daughter’s church choir director – I just loved it (almost so much that I wanted to keep it!). The card was posted here with all that I did for that so let’s talk about the other two projects, shall we? But first I forgot to share with you the verse I had on the inside of the card, I just loved it! Here it is:

Bach gave us God’s Word.

Mozart gave us God’s laughter.

Beethoven gave us God’s fire.

God gave us Music that we might pray without words.

I knew I wanted to make a small charm for either her bracelet or necklace as she enjoys wearing jewelry. I used the small square Simply Adorned Charm and used a piece of the printed music as my base. I then embossed the large flower from Elements of Style over it and sponged with Soft Suede ink. I then stamped the image again on scrap cardstock and cut out a small flower, watercoloured it with Pretty Ink Pink and the adhered inside just over a little scallop circle of Soft Suede which was cut from the Birds and Blooms Sizzlet.

And on the other side:

Then, I needed something awesome to put it in so I again used Very Vanilla cardstock on which I’d previously printed music. I ran it through my Big Shot with the Scallop Bag Bigz die (love it) and it ended up looking something like this:

I sponged each section with Soft Suede ink and adhered it all together. I then added a Soft Suede tag from Lots of Tags sizzlets on the top flap. I added a bow of Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon and a clear rhinestone brad. Had I taken a photo of the back you’d see that this piece of linen thread is attached in behind the folded Soft Suede tag and winds around the front of the box and around the brad to keep it closed. I then added a couple of baubles from the Pretties Kit.

So there you have it! Thanks for stopping by today!
