... with a Piano.
When comes the end of June, I am putting on my thinking cap to come up with an idea of a Piano Birthday Card. Why? Our Piano Teacher Rosemarie's birthday is coming up.
(Check out post #43 and #254 for earlier pop up piano cards.)
This year, I am trying myself at another kind and since my uncle's birthday (Claude Cohen, the very famous pianist of the Puente Romano, Marbella) is coming up, I made this card in double.
Check it out:
Another view of it half open: it does look like a Baby Grand, doesn't it?
I made it an A2 card: I folded in two a black card stock 8 1/4 in by 5 1/2 in, and cut out free hand the shape of a piano on each side.
I then cut the top part at 1 1/4 in of the edge, as to mimic a lid.
The bottom part of the "lid" is then glue down but I scored and folded it at 1/2 in to make a Music desk that hold the simile sheet music up.
I then added a printed keyboard on top.
I found that wonderful LD Music font for the words and added a few notes from another font called Tone Deaf BB, both free on the internet.
On the inside, i added a white lining to write a personal message.
I think Rosemarie is going to like it...
Until next time!
