sing, santa! sing!

we're still celebrating all things musical at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and you still have time to join the fun. just make a card that incorporates sheet music, music notes or instruments-- easy, peasy! here's what i made:

stickers: doodlebug + recollections (the tree); sheet music alphabets from my etsy shop; chipboard letters: thickers/american crafts; patterned paper: photoplay; cardstock: bazzill; enamel dot for rudolph's nose: eyelet outlet; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine; here's a tip for when you want to make the stitches blend in with, say, red chipboard letters, but don't feel like changing your white thread & bobbin: sew the letters on with the white thread, then take a red brush marker and caaaaaaaaaaaarefully tint the stitches! :) 

i've used my own diecut sheet music alphas from my etsy shop, just enough stuff, but other than that it's all ordinary xmas stash: adorable, dimensional doodlebug stickers, super-useful chipboard letters, and maybe the best xmas plaid paper of all time, courtesy of photoplay!

stephanie also has another fabulous, music-centric card to show you, it's over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ right now, darlings!
