Drummer birthday card

I have used a topper from a Hunkydory Little Book for my son who is drummer. I have covered my 8x8in white card with red card. I have embossed two pieces of white card. with a folder I had free with a magazine. I used gilding wax to highlight musical elements on embossing. I die cut my personalised sentiment with a Presscut oval die and then cut the next size in the nesting set in gold to mount my sentiment. I have die cut a scalloped circle using a Xcut die and added the numbers that I cut with Tattered Lace dies. I cut the treble clef with a Cheery Lynn die.
