ID: MC Nov/18 Easel Digi Music Notes - Merry Christmas - Music Expresses card
size: 7"w x 5"H (easel closed)

Created: November 18, 2018

My turn on the Quietfire Digital blog and I wanted to do something musical...

Also using a quote and design element background stamps from Suzanne available on Quietfire Design  ("Music Expresses"); ("Merry Christmas Background"); ("Grid Background")

I'm also using several digital cut files from Suzanne available on Silhouette onLine store. Click images to purchase.


Scored and folded my dark grey toned cardstock to create the easel structure. Cut another piece from a matte silver cardstock same size as card and adhered to front. 

Opened my SCAL software (Sure Cuts A Lot) and created the musical background using the Music Dingbat font. Made sure everything touched something and then cut from white cardstock. Inked with Distress Black Soot Oxide pad. Doodled with a white gel pen on the large treble clef.

Cut the white 1/2" wide frame, same size as card front and embossed with Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder. Adhered the musical notes and frame to the front, some under the frame and some on top of it. 

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Circle" die set. Adhered to edge of frame front.


On the Floor: stamped the Grid pattern on an angle twice on white cardstock using my Tim's Stampin' Platform with Black Onyx and clear embossed. Trimmed down.

Stamped the Merry Christmas background on white cardstock with Distress "Pumice Stone" and embossed with Silver Detail embossing powder, then electronically cut the Merry Christmas. Also cut a shadow layer and inked with the Oxide black. Adhered both together then onto the grid background.

Cut the holly and berry branches from white cardstock, inked with oxide pads and adhered to floor. Adhered everything to floor with 3D foam tape. 

Final touch added Liquid Pearls "White Opal" and Red" to the berries.
