Love the simple and clean look of this card. Spellbinders are on my Christmas list this year!

It looks so elegant

This is stunning. I would have never thought to have so much dimension in a card.

It would be nice to make cards like this as thank-you notes for my professors writing me recommendations for graduate school applications

I would LOVE to win this. I have always wanted to learn card making but never got around to trying. I have made other items with scrapbook paper. This would be something new to try.

So delicate

love this!

looks simple but elegant

Neat, looks easy enough.

never made musical before

This would be a great card to use as an invitation to a child's piano recital or other musical performance.

I've never really done any paper crafting, but really admire the work that others do.

I love paper crafts. I have a kindergartener and he is my little helper.. plus he loves using mommies stuff to make art work!

They make this look so easy! Hopefully I can pull this off as well :)

Elegant with a very personal touch - very nice.

I love making my own cards, but never thought to add music to them. I've always bought pre-made cards if I wanted music in them. So silly of me, lol.

I'm not very good with cards, but this is so pretty..

Dry embossing is one of my favorite techniques to use on my cards. Very pretty.

Sadly I don't have the embossing equipment to make this...would love to though!

What a beautiful card! I like the personal touch of a handmade card. Very nice!

so simple and yet so elegant!

I'm going to try this for Christmas cards this year

This is the perfect card for all of my friends and family. We are all in the Austin area and as everyone knows Austin is the live music capitol of the world!!!

Perfect for my daughters music teacher!

Cards are cool!!!_

How fun! Lots of ideas for variations on the theme. I like it! =)

A beautiful idea for Christmas cards!

Just in time for holiday cards.


I like this very much!


I like music chips.

not a project I would do but it's very pretty

I'd have to acquire an embossing machine first.

Very nice.

This looks a little above my talents...but beautiful!!

this one seems really complicated to me

I love to make cards.

Not sure if I would do this or not.

like this idea, will have to try it

Cute idea. Lots of people I could make this for!

how fun.


Really like the idea, will give it a try.

I like the Spellbinders Music M-Bossabilities embossing folder. I think that using a white core cardstock that is sanded after being embossed would make this card even better looking.

I do like this craft and will probably make some of them for Birthday cards this year.

Don't usually do paper crafts, but for this I'd make an exception!

So much different than the cards we used to make!

Great idea! This would be perfect for music teachers and music lovers!

This sounds like a very simple project with a very elegant result. Would love to try.

I would give this card to my dear friend Mary who is a music teacher. She lost her Mom earlier this year and is having a very hard time dealing with her loss. I think this card would put a smile on her face!

This is a beautiful card. I can see this being a great way of offering money to a newlywed couple or a music major graduating from college.

Beautiful project!

I love the embossing on this, and the fact that it's so simple and yet nice enough to give to anyone.

Embossing is one of my favorite things when making cards. So many choices and so few cards and little time to create.

Pretty, simple yet elegant
