Musical Birthday

>> Monday, May 21, 2012

Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a good weekend!

Today I want to share a birthday card created with a couple of newly released stamps from DRS Designs - Marching Band Trumpet (056G) and Beat the Band Birthday (076E). These two stamps pair nicely with the Happy Birthday Music Background stamp (763P).

I started with a black card base and added a red panel that was embossed with the CB Happy Birthday folder. Before attaching the red panel I added the two pieces of red and black ribbon. The music background was stamped in black on white CS and cut out with a nestie. It's layered on a black scalloped circle and attached to the red panel. The Marching Band Trumpet was also stamped in black on white CS, colored with copics and then cut out. He's attached with pop dots for some dimension. The sentiment was stamped in the same black ink on white CS. I cut the sentiment into two pieces, sponged the edges with Real Red ink and then layered them on black CS. They are attached in the corners over the ribbon. To finish it off I added a music clip I found at Hobby Lobby on clearance. Gotta love those sale items!

Until next time,

Great birthday creation. I love black and white cards. I like that you cut the trumpet player out and the fun ribbon.
