This is a card I made with Classical Instruments stamp set by The Stamp Man www.thestampman.co.uk
I chose a gold and dark brown colour scheme as I felt the swirly design of the stamps worked well with a metallic finish.
The main image of the guitar was stamped with clear VersaMark ink pad and them heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I stamped the image on a large piece of brown card. I cut out a the guitar image from the centre of the card. The piece that was left I used for the frame background panel.
I used the top part of the guitar stamp for the swirl pattern which I stamped around the edge of the frame and guitar image. I stuck gold paper on the front of a card blank with double sided tape. I layered up the card design with the frame, brown card strips, gold paper and the guitar image.
The card with finished with a stamped greeting. The frame I used for the greeting is also part of the Classical Instrument stamp set. The birthday greeting is from Butterfly Beauties stamp set which is also by The Stamp Man.
