I had just bought some Steel Craft Dies at the Farmer's Market from a lady who runs a Craft and Scrapbooking business from her home. Since she's from a town at least an hour from here, I would probably not have heard of her had she not attended the Market. Serendipitously she did.
The die I knew I wanted to use for this sketch is made by Memory Box and is called Virtuoso Music. I knew it would cut my Silver Foil beautifully and the result was stunning. For the oval, I decided not to add a layer to the top of the base cardstock but instead I used one of my Ovals Collection framelits to cut into it. Behind that I planned to adhere a piece of Vellum Cardstock embossed with my Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder. I ran the vellum through my Big Shot four times to ensure that the embossed image would be very, very deeply embossed.
I decided to back the musical notes with Basic Black cardstock to make the silver "pop" against the black rather than be mediocre against the vellum. I hand cut the black, fitting it around the musical notes but allowed a larger margin at the bottom so that there would be room to heat emboss a phrase. For the phrase I pieced together words from several stamp sets. For the sentiment I kept it simple with a little banner held down with a fancy arrow.
