Rococo Music Dies - Dance Tribute, Treble Clef and Perfect Harmony

Good morning all, hope you're having a good day.  As we are in the middle of a Tonic Studios Weekender offer I thought I would share one of the cards I made using a couple of the Tonic Studios Rococo Music Collection Dies along with some of the older Tonic Studios Dies.

This is rather a large card, I took a sheet of A4 Black card and using my Tonic Studios Super Trimmer I scored at the halfway point - 10 1/2cm right the way down the length of the card.  I then turned the sheet and cut at 10cm from the card edge up to the centre score line, flipped my card over and cut at 10cm from the other edge of the card into the centre score line again giving me three panels for my triple easel.  I scored the middle panel in half centrally and each of the outer panels I scored from the corner of the card up to the centre score line so they would angle inwards.  I layered my card base with a gold pearlescent, another black and an inked music sheet from a 12 x 12 I've had for years and years by October Afternoon.

The backing for my Rococo Music Toppers are the Keepsake Indulgence Verso Frames.   I cut the Royal Frame twice in black as a backing and twice in gold for the detailed top layer, I then cut the Regal Frame in opposing colours so the backing in gold and the detailed top layer in black.  One of the foiled Celebration Toppers was inked with Antique Linen and a touch of Walnut Stain on the very edge to blend in with the overall theme, then added to the Regal frame and mounted onto the middle panel.  The Royal Frames were both inked and mounted onto the panels on either side, making sure they are facing the correct way.  Dance Tribute and Treble Clef were cut from gold mirror card and black and drop shadowed before being added to the Royal Frames.  Perfect Harmony was cut from black but backed with gold mirror card.  This was then cut into three separate sections to act as a stop for each of the easel panels so were stuck to the card using 3d foam pads.

I hope you can join Jodie for more inspiration and demonstrations on Create and Craft today for the Tonic Weekender shows.
