Rhapsody in Blue

I was so pleased with this card that I just had to make another masked-border card straight away!


This time I inked the border with a pale blue ink and stamped musical symbols (from a Kanban set) with a darker blue. To keep the card CAS, all I added to the central white space was a die cut music score cut with the Memory Box Music Party die, one of my most often-used dies. I kept the centres of all the "open" notes in place with a dab of glue, again to keep it as CAS as possible. In real life, the die cut is a much brighter blue than it looks, a pretty close match to the darker blue stamping.

I am sharing this with
