This card was created with my musically talented son in mind and was inspired by the sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping. I created the musical background paper as a word document by cutting and pasting a musical image and then printing it onto three different shades of cardstock. I used a computer generated image to print a viola shape and cut it out of the background paper. I used an Xacto knife to cut the "F" holes then matted the viola onto black cardstock. I drew the bow and cut it out from cardstock, coloring it with colored pencils and attaching it with dimensional adhesive. I matted the strip with the viola onto a piece of vanilla cardstock and used a Kraft card base. I finished the card by adding the sentiment with a marker. I thought about adding the viola strings, but in the end decided to leave the image as it is for a cleaner look.
