Just a note!

Happy Thursday everyone! I am finally here after an unplanned blogging break. I have been very busy lately creating cards for my friends/clients that I barely had time to make something special to post on my blog. But today, I am happy to share this card with all of you. My sweet husband requested me a card for a special friend; it is “Thank you” note. Since the recipient of this card is a classic music lover, I decided to create a card using some Vintage music sheets. So here is my card, I hope you like it!

I created my own music patterned paper. I searched for free Vintage music sheets. I found one that I liked, and then printed out on cream cardstock to give that old Vintage look. The piece I printed out was composed by Vivaldi and it is one of my favorite pieces – “The Four Seasons”.

This card is huge! It is a letter size card folded in half. Why it is so big? Well, my husband will be collecting signatures and sweet notes for this person. The sentiment is computer generated. As I was working on the card, I came up with the idea to incorporate the word “NOTE” as in musical note for the sentiment. I used only one stamp on this card and it is from Rubber Stampede. I got it a few years ago and have never used it before - until today. It is called Scalloped Oval label.

ETA: Sorry girls! I did use the polka dots stamp and basic hearts from PTI too.

It really makes me so happy to create a card for someone so special. I know my husband is delighted to bring the card to his work today. I hope this card will inspire you to create something sweet for those special persons in your life. I have two more cards to share, but I will be adding those when I take and edit the pictures. Until then, have a sweet and a wonderful day!!!
