Card Share: We've Got the Beat

I was asked to design a set of cards for our high school marching band. At the end of this month, they take the cards, along with bags of candy, to other marching bands in the area as a friendly gesture following their competitive season.

I combined an Echo Park music symbol cut file with text of my own design, using a red, black and white color scheme to keep the design clean and classic.

Just a heads up, I had to alter the original music cut file. The bass clef (the symbol on the left in the cut file) was upside down. I was able to rotate it to its proper position but had to delete the 16th note (the center note in the cut file) completely because it could not be ungrouped and adjusted to its proper position. Thankfully friends who are in the know about music caught the errors. Otherwise, I would have been really embarrassed. Oops!
