The Musical...

Good morning!  Patti J. here with you today...
If you are like me, you like music.  ALL music!  On any given day, I have music playing while I work.  My taste goes from hymns and gospel, to Aerosmith, and everything in between!  So, when the February new release at the Die-Versions store was 'The Musical', I couldn't wait to get my happy mail!  Here's the first card that I created with one of my new dies:

This card uses the Die-Versions Whispers "Rosy Music" #DVW-327.  I had seen 'piano' cards in the past, and thought it would be a great way to showcase this beautiful die.

To make this card, I just cut strips of white and black cardstock.  I outlined the white strips with a gray Copic marker to give them some depth (too much, actually!), and just adhered them to my card base. Added the black strips and a ribbon (left over from our daughter and son-in-laws reception last year) and voila!  What fun.  Since I'm a Chemo Angel/Senior Angel, I use a LOT of Thinking of You cards, so the sentiment was not difficult to decide on.

This next card was fun, too!  So often, we get these border dies, and use them only at the very top of a page. I recalled this fun row of spring flowers and sentiment from, and thought that this die (Die-Versions DVW-335 "Music Waterfall") would be a perfect division between the image and the sentiment.

The flowers are pre-colored - the only addition is a touch of glossy accents on the orange flowers. I think you can see the shine if you enlarge the photo.
I think it will certainly brighten someones day, and I'm sure we are all ready to sing those songs of spring!

I hope you'll follow us here on the blog for more beautiful samples using the February release dies!
We'd also love it if you would 'like' us on Facebook!
You can also watch videos of our dies on You-Tube!
