No coloring Birthday card

It is Friday! Today I want to show you a card I made that has no coloring on it. I made it using die cuts.

The card is 5x7 in size and so I created a cardbase. I then added a cardpanel onto it cut out of textured cardstock and added a strip of coordinating patterned paper to the left hand side. I then cut the frame out of brown cardstock and positioned it toward the lower end of the card. I cut the envelope out of patterned paper and the music notes out of cream cardstock and assembled them inside the frame.

The card was completed with a die cut sentiment cut out of black cardstock and then coated with Wink of Stella.

Have a great weekend. Thank you for visiting.
