I am enjoying the process of using these music gift wrap backgrounds which I cut from gift wrap that was on one of my gift this past Christmas. I rubbed this one with an old multicoloured stamp pad and then used a paper towel to blend the colours and ensure that the surface was dry. The gift wrap is a bit glossy so it takes a while for the ink to sink in which facilitates these backgrounds. I glued it to a dark purple card front, added a length of coordinating ribbon gluing the ends to the inside of the card. I tied on a silver cord to the wide ribbon inserting a dark sheer ribbon in the knot. I sponged the die cut greeting to coordinate and adhered it over the ribbons using double sided tape. Quick and easy with supplies from my stash!!
