Quick and Postal Friendly Holiday Card


be-joyful-music-background(click on any photo to enlarge)

ACK! I need a quick card for a blog post!

I found this musical background in my “backgrounds” folder. Added some lovely green paper, and a “Be Joyful” sentiment in Silver Pearl embossing powder.

Very festive, and very mail friendly, don’t you think?

I can’t see musical notes and the word “joyful” together without thinking about the end of “Sister Act II: Back in the Habit” (1993),  with Lauren Hill singing lead on “Joyful, Joyful”.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp, paper – Malmero Perle’ Sparkle Green, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, inks – Stampin’ Up! Real Red, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, twine – MarkerPop.

  1. I agree, definitely very festive and mail friendly. Why is sheet music so appealing us for decorative purposes, I wonder?! I’ll save the music clip for later or it will be in my head for the rest of the day. I love those films!

    • I do find sheet music to be very artistic. I don’t play an instrument or sing (other than the shower or with the car radio), I don’t read music well.

      • I used to be able to read it (piano and violin lessons as a kid) but I don’t think I could now, strangely. It should be like riding a bike, but I don’t think it is!

      • Oh, I bet you would pick it up very quickly if you started again…quicker than I would learning it for the first time.

      • Let’s hope I don’t need to prove that theory in some kind of emergency situation!

  2. Aw, pretty card! So bright and cheer filled.
    And yes … I too think of that song in Sister Act …. and now … I have gained todays earworm! eek.

  3. Love this background and how you created a label in a shape of a tag with this twine! Looks very nice!
