I started with a piece of black cardstock, and heat embossed the sheet music background using black embossing powder. That part actually photographed pretty well.
The part that’s harder to see is how those notes are floating. Instead of just using some standard foam squares to raise them up, I actually took a piece of black foam and die-cut the notes out of it, and then just layered the colorful cardstock notes on top. The black foam really just blends into the background, making the notes look a bit like they are floating.
You could probably get a similar effect by layering several die-cut notes together, all cut from black cardstock. The effect might not be quite as smooth from the side, but pretty close from the front. However, the foam wasn’t expensive, and this was actually a very quick and easy design.
The sentiment is just die-cut letters in bright colors, I added some enamel dots in the upper right-hand corner, and put the whole thing on a white card base.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
