 Other Products used:
Creative Expressions Gold Treasure Gilding Polish, Creative Expressions Gold Mirrored Cardstock, Coconut White Foundations Card, Black Cardstock, Gold Flat-back Gems.

HOW-TO
Start by using a coloring medium (such as a Gilding Polish), to sponge over the raised dry-embossed background panel. I've used black Cardstock paper and polished it with a gold gilding polish for contrast. Dark papers with metallic mediums show-off the embossing details best.


Next, I diecut 2 extra back panels and sponged edges with same gilding polish, as well as several of the sentiments to adhere together and layer.

 I also die-cut several of the musical panels to layer-up and give the focal point great dimension.

The last diecut was made to frame the main panel and finish the look.  This thin frame was diecut from Gold Mirrored Cardstock by using both framing dies together and running through diecut machine once. The result is a fabulous golden border to go around the detailed musical panel! 

At this point, I also decided to diecut an additional sentiment from the same Gold Mirrored Cardstock to match.. The last step was adding the gold gems.  End result is a shimmery golden musical card with lots of fun texture.
That's it!  Hope you'll give this Sue Wilson cutting die a try!
