I used the Stampin’ Up! Musical Season stamp set bundle that will be available beginning September 1 to create my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge this week. My card was inspired by one that Leena Girsa created. You can see her beautiful project here.
Here is the sketch for Fab Friday 119. Hope that you’ll stop by the Fab Friday Challenge Blog and play along too!
I started by adhering a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock to an Always Artichoke card base with SNAIL. I added one of the gold Foil Snowflakes (available Sept 1) with a little SNAIL to adhere it. Then I sponged a panel from the Merry Music Specialty DSP with Soft Suede ink and adhered it over the Foil Snowflake with SNAIL.
I cut four Garden Green and four Always Artichoke branches with the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies (available Sept 1) and I adhered them to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the french horn with one of the Musical Instruments Framelits Dies (available Sept 1) from Gold Foil Sheets and I stamped one of the images from the Musical Season stamp set (available Sept 1) across the end in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I adhered the die cut to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Musical Season stamp set in VersaMark ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I punched the end of the strip with the Banner Triple Punch and then sponged it with Soft Suede ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Cherry Cobbler enamel dots from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack to finish it.
I stamped the sentiment from the Musical Season stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I inked the branch image from the Musical Season stamp set in Soft Suede ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it over the sentiment. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink to finish the inside of the card.
You can see a list of supplies, including card stock cuts, for this project at the very bottom of this post.

What a lovely traditional card. I saw the musical instruments set and had no idea what to do with it. This card certainly shows how the instruments can shine on a cardd
Thanks Kathy! 🙂
Oh wow, that is absolutely stunning. I’m like Kathy I saw the musical instruments and though Nah – but I think you have converted me, haha
Thanks Sandi! It’s a great set…the dies are what sold me! 🙂
Yes, this is absolutely stunning. I didn’t really pay attention to this set, either. What a wonderful card for Christmas!
Thanks Jari! 🙂
Oh good golly! You know I LOVE this card! It’s got all things I love – pines – music – and a gorgeous snowflake peeking out. Perfectly done, Amy! 🙂
Thanks Mary! I love the way that it turned out too! 🙂

What a fabulous card Amy! I really love the addition of the foil snowflake. So pretty!!
Thanks for the inspiration Leena! 🙂
Gorgeous! I think Mary must be my twin. We like your card because it has our favs-Pines, Music, and a bit of snow! May have to CAS this one. Have the set, but no time to play with it.
I can’t believe all of you above overlooked this set!!!
Thanks Julie! The dies are what really sold me on the stamp set…I love them! 🙂
A totally wow card. I love everything about it. This would truly be a beautiful card to send to friends and family. My husand’s mother was a music teacher and had musical instrument ornaments we still have. This reminds me of those.
Thanks Susan! I’m so glad that you like my card, the die set is amazing! 🙂
What a gorgeous, classy card😊
Thanks so much Linda! 🙂
Such a pretty card Amy! Super clever embossing gold across the french horn, it gives the instrument more depth! ; )
