Instead of a fathers day card I have made a birthday card for my boyfriend's dad as his birthday is coming up in a few weeks.
He is quite musical and he plays the guitar, among other things, so this edwin image that I got from a blog bud was perfect for his card. As usual, it is coloured with distress inks and I also distressed the edge with weathered wood ink to really make the image stand out.
For the paper I went in search of some free sheet music to download and I thought it made a perfect background for the card. The embossed panel was done using the allegro folder, again keeping the musical theme.
I finished off the card with some black ribbon, a music note charm and some jewels.
For the inside I followed the same sketch (roughly!) and I used the same downloaded sheet music as my DP.
Finally, an image of the card from another angle!!!
