Sing It! A Musical Notes Die-Versions Card



Happy Tuesday! It's my turn to post a card on Die-Version's blog and mine. Today I am sharing a musical shaker card featuring the Musical Notes boy and Harmony notes dies from Die-Versions. My grandson plays violin so I knew I just had to get this sweet musical boy die, and the notes are perfect accents for any musical card. I cut the notes in white and also in navy blue for inside the shaker with the beads.

I started this card by cutting a circle hole just the right size for a Shake It Card Pouch by Impression Obsession. I love to make shaker cards and these plastic shapes from IO make them super easy. I embossed a blue card front with a musical embossing folder from Darice. I die cut the Musical Boy and the notes from white cardstock scraps and also cut some navy blue musical notes. I stamped the fun sentiment from Technique Junkies in blue ink on the white card base where it would show through the shaker circle. I dumped a bunch of beads and some musical notes in the Shake It plastic circle and finished putting the card together.

Here is a close-up of the shaker elements all shook up:

I think that's the first musical shaker card I've seen and I love it, Karen! Our son used to play the violin when he was very young, just like your grandson, so this brought back those memories for me!! Hugs, Darnell
