Created this Christmas card with a music theme.
Used Tim Holtz Victorian Carolers but before I die cut them I used TH sander on the cardstock and after cutting used TH Distress Ink on the edges. Used TH paper distresser.
Used MISTI tool to line up & stamp the sentiment banners & sentiment at top. Used MISTI tool to stamp the unexpected part of my card. After you read words 'On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me ...' you can see a Partridge in a Pear Tree stamped under the Christmas music scrapbook paper that is attached to card with silver jingle bell brads & you can lift up to see the Partridge & Pear Tree branch. I came up with the idea of what to do for the unexpected when I decided to use the scrap piece of Christmas music scrapbook paper.
