Card for a music man

I've been commissioned to make a few cards, one of which is for a musician who will be 70 this birthday. I used an A4 card that already had piano keys and a treble clef on it, using it so that the piano keys are on the back of the card.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail and also swiped the versamark around the edges and corners, embossing in the same way. The piano keys strip and the 70 are gold foiled, although they don't look it here.

This week's Sunday challenge on Stamptacular is 'One for the boys!' - the card has to be for a man or boy - and only linked for that challenge and, of course, include stamping.

If you haven't left a comment for my blog candy, please take a look here and join in.

  4. What a super cool 70th birthday card! I just love the paper you have used on this...I think adding the embossing around the edges is a really easy way to embellish with an amazingly rich looking result! Well done!
