This week we're celebrating one of our favorite things at jingle belles ... Christmas Music. We're asking you to create a card (or gift card holder, or whatever else you'll be needing for the holidays) that incorporates music, that is inspired by a holiday song, or that includes a holiday song title.
Here are our musically inspired designs:
Lauren says, "i built my entire card around a 3x4" sheet music embellishment from october afternoon's holiday style miscellany collection; i loved the soft colors, the charming retro-style and even the magical feeling of christmas snow... so i tried to expand on all of these in my design. i used the may 21st layout sketch at sketch support to guide the placement of my elements, and i'm quite pleased with the result!"
Stephanie says, "I started by scanning some vintage sheet music I had in my collection and re-sizing it for my card front. Next I stamped Hero Arts Merriest Christmas Wishes in Blue Iris on the music-printed cardstock. I intended to use the image stamped directly on the music, but managed to flub my attempt at a hand-drawn frame, so I cut out the stamped image and placed it on top of a second piece of the printed music (I always print enough to cover a piece of cardstock) using a blue cardstock frame to cover the flub. I added red colored pencil to my cardinal for a little pop."
If you're stumped, here's a list of Christmas Songs to get your creative juices flowing or put in some holiday CDs and start singing (or humming or whistling) those holiday tunes and link-up your creations by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, June 13th using keyword JB12-12 for our flickr (and other) galleries.
