Well, i have some build-a-background type stamps like this piano one here- here it is right side up…
And I simply flipped it upside down, like this:
...and used the back of it to stamp a solid stripe! I dug through my stash and found I had a few such stamps that could give me a couple different widths of stripe.
And while I was stamping, I thought- well, why don't I stamp this little piano into one of the stripes and make it a little feature on the card? I have tons of musical friends I could send this to, and they'd be super pleased :)
And just above the piano, I added a Happy Birthday sentiment, and then just hand-wrote the 'to you' bit.
I really hope you likey :)
