Elegant Musical Season Card with Gold Accents

Elegant Musical Season Card with Gold Accents

Several weeks ago I created this elegant Musical Season card with gold  accents.  With a musician in the family, I just had to have the Musical Instruments framelits.  Although there is no trumpet in the collection, this French horn is gorgeous!  Just in case you want to create this elegant and simple card, I have included a little mini-tutorial for you.  Enjoy!

  1. Ann this is so pretty. I LOVE how you used the gold washi tape on the plaid! Very cool.

  2. Ann – what a beautiful card! Love the gold washi – I didn’t even really notice it in the catalog! I think we should ask SU for a trumpet next time!

  3. What a gorgeous use of the French horn and gold accents! Love how you used the washi tape (so straight) on the banner!

  4. So Beautiful, Elegant and has a lovely richness about it.
    Hope you had an enjoyable and safe trip down this way over the weekend.

    So rich and elegant! Washi Tape, I even ordered it but have not played with it yet – I actually put it away in with other Washi Tapes. Who wouldn’t want your tutorials – I probably won’t make the exact same card since I don’t have the musical set but I am CASEing the idea and probably a lot of the glitz and glam since I usually don’t do much of that but this is really great! I do have a friend who plays many instruments so maybe I might figure out something. Oh, I would not thought of using the embossing folder either but it looks really good on there with those cute little black rhinestones.

  9. Ann this is a true masterpiece – the royal colors with a bit of glitz and gold glam. How did you come up with this wonderful idea – it’s really regal! Who wouldn’t want this for their Christmas cheer!
