Musical Cards

In the Holiday Mini Catalogue, Stampin' Up! is offering cards with sound.  There are two options - one allows you to record your own greeting (up to 10 seconds) and the other is a pre-recorded card that plays and instrumental version of We Wish You a Merry Christmas.  The cards are plain white so that they can be decorated and embellished.

I have purchased several of the cards and hopefully will have them all decorated and ready to mail in time for Christmas.  This one was very easy.  I covered the card with Cherry Cobbler card stock and then layered on some DSP from the Deck the Halls package.  Before adhering that layer to the card, I created a double bow and adhered it to the DSP.  I stamped the greeting onto Very Vanilla card stock and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.  I also made a mat by punching out two of the Decorative Labels in Cherry Cobbler and then trimming and layering them.  I saw a video on Angela McKay's blog HERE showing how to do this.
