ID: MC Feb/12 - SB Labels 16 - Music card
5"w x 6.25"h

Created: February 17, 2012

Continuing on with my self imposed challenge of only using my scraps - giving myself till the end of March to see how it goes... this card was also made only with scraps.

I'm using a beautiful quote stamp from Quietfire Design


I drew a musical scale thing with a pencil, larger than what I needed, went over it with the bullet tip of a Zig Writer, scanned it and imported it into my SCAL software, then cut with my electronic cutter. I cut two of them , adhered them together, inked the surface with Versafine Black Onyx and embossed with black embossing powder.

Used the Cuttlebug "Allegro" embossing folder on the front of my card, then hitting the high points with my dirty red sponge to give it a pink tinge.

Stamped my quote with the black and clear embossed, sponged the edges with Distress Spun Sugar, then some of the Worn Lipstick to get a deeper pink look. Created a faux stitching with a Sakura Black Glaze pen. Adhered the little black rhinestones on the points.

I had these snippets (3" x 1.5") of shiny paper to create an origami Lotus flower. I knew I'd never do that and the papers have been sitting in my drawer for eons, so pulled them out, tore some and covered the edges of a piece of cardstock to cut my shadow border. Since I used the largest die in the Labels 16 set for the quote piece, I used the same die and hand cut along the dies edge. Adhered them together then adhered it to the card with 3D foam dots.
