Music Day

March 18th was 'Music Day' and I wasn't sure how to interpret this for my card at the J & C Creations Blog, I didn't have any musical orientated stamps, however I did find this lovely background paper at the J & C warehouse. So I decided not to use an image, but chose this very famous quote instead! Hope you like it!

Items from J & C Creations 

Black card
Musical note paper
Black & ivory ribbon
'Fancy Buttons'
Spellbinders 'Decorative Labels 8' die
Tim Holtz 'Antique Linen' distress ink pad

To make:

Use the distress ink pad to ink the edges of the card blank. Glue a square of the patterned paper to a larger square of black card. Use the largest & 3rd largest dies to cut frames from black card. Using the largest die as a template, draw around the aperture onto patterned paper and cut out, then glue to the larger frame. Print the quote onto plain paper and cut out in the same way. Ink the edges and then glue to the smaller frame. Using 3d foam, attach the larger frame to the square of patterned paper at an angle. Thread some black ribbon through the holes on the smaller frame and attach to the middle of the layered pieces using 3d foam, secure the ribbon on the reverse using sticky tape. Glue everything onto the card blank. Cut another frame using the largest die, carefully snip off the corners and glue these onto the corners of the card. Attach a black bow to the upper left corner of the card and add the smaller ivory ribbon on top. Finish off by gluing a button to either side of the smaller frame. (The backs of the buttons can be snipped off using a good pair of scissors so that they lie flatter when glued.)
