My Merry Monday Challenge was made all the more of a challenge when my husband decided he was going to choose the song I had to depict in the card. As you can imagine he didn't suggest the easiest song out of the book!
He went for Cliff Richards Mistletoe and Wine Christmas song which for those of you who aren't familiar with it and are wondering what this card is all about, the words go something like this:-
A Child is a King
The Carollers Sing
The old is past there's a new beginning
Dreams of Santa
Dreams of Snow
Christmas time, Mistletoe and Wine.... and later on....
Love and laughter and joy ever after, ours for the taking just follow the Master..
I did not have enough stamps or die cuts suitable for this card so had to resort to the computer. Wanting to avoid the pitfalls of breaching copyright and not having enough time to email people to ask for permission as I do, I had to just use the clip art already installed on my laptop... not the best of images, but hey ho. it's a bit of fun at the end of the day.
I printed a vinyl disc picture as my base, created a record label for the centre and then mounted images of the key points in the first verse of the song, which I mounted on sparkly gold card.
I topped this off by cutting the card the shape of the record leaving the text bar at the bottom for stability.
I know a mad crazy Cliff fan who will really enjoy receiving this Christmas card, albeit rather over the top!
