What a great clean, simple and beautiful Christmas card! It's also very versatile if you think of it as a recipe card of sorts. You can surely tailor it to the person you're giving it to by changing up the music and sentiment. Maybe even the color combination as well. This could go quite a long ways on polishing off my forever lengthening Christmas card list!

What a marvelous idea! I think this is great and not all that expensive. I have the card stock and pen and hundreds of buttons as I make crochet items all the time. All I need is to down load the music sheets. And this is just perfect since my daughter in law and best friend are music teachers. Thank you so much for sharing this.
