Last year my mother moved from the house she and my father had lived in for more than 50 years to an apartment. My mother is a life long musician so naturally, she's acquired a great deal of sheet music and books over the many years. When it came time to move she gave away much of her music to other teachers, church organists and choir directors and also to many of her musician friends. Some of the music, though, was very old, discolored and torn. I let her know that any music she no longer wanted or could give away, I would love to use for cards. And so she gave me a lot of old sheet music.
I was playing around with some of the sheet music the other day. This first card I just might use for some of my Christmas cards this year. It is quite simple and quick to make but I like this sentiment with the music background.
The next card is just for fun...well actually, it is "just a note" card! It is based primarily on the Christmas card but one that could be used for any occasion or just a note.
These cards are minimal stamping but were a lot of fun to make. I'm going to see what else I can come up with using some of my mother's sheet music. I like that it has yellowed over the years. It gives these cards a special "vintage" look to them.
Until next time,
