Let the music rock on....a birthday card for a special son who loves his music and does DJ-ing as a sideline.
A very simple design and I would have loved a little more time to play. The base card was black cardstock highlighted with the music theme DSP purchased locally, some black grosgrain ribbon with the beautiful spellbinder die made from some at home rusty red cardstock, then the cirle and scallop necessability cutouts were added with a dimension and of course a couple of black adhesive pearls to help balance it all out.
I jazzed up the back flap of the envelope with the DSP. Just place a little glue to hold paper on flap and then trim around. Really makes a difference. Another idea I've tried is to run the envelope flap through my bigshot placing the flap in an embossing folder, now that really does look nice!
Another alternative design to the above would be to do a card around the 10 or 12 cm square, just play around with sizing to see what suits you. Place the DSP on two-thirds of the front and place a series of scor lines on the black cardstock at the bottom. Attach your ribbon and centre pieces. This way I think the card would be more balanced and it would soften the starkness of the white background of the DSP. What do you think....would love to hear your ideas?
Thanks for stopping by....take care and keep smiling...regards, Ann
