Musical Birthday Card

For the gal who loves to play (and teach) piano: this card was cute!  The SVG cut file is from My Scrap Chick and can be found here.  I used my SCAL computer program and my Silhouette to cut all the pieces. The original card was portrait, mine is changed to landscape position. Made in my favorite colors: Red, White, Black with co-ordinating mini dots red/black paper. Details of stamped message used below.
Here's a closer look at the crystal gel pen used to outline all the musical notes: for that shimmery look!
Card inside: Notes are also outlined with Crystal Gel pen. Top and bottom board is punched with EK Success scallop boarder punch. Also added 1/4" red and white grosgrain ribbons. "happy Birthday" is cut from Happy Birthday to You collection Cupcake Lever Card.

Hi Patti,
I just wanted you to know I FINALLY used my SCAL 2 & made a project for my son's teacher. It was so easy & fast, I am totally kicking myself for not using it sooner!!! Thank you for the inspiration my friend :) hugs~
