Piano Card Tutorial

Here’s a tutorial for how I made this card.

piano cardI took a sheet of cardstock 8/5 x 11 cm.  Holding it landscape, I scored and folded it at the 5.5 mark.

I drew the piano shape by hand and cut it out with a pair of scissors on the open side.  (You can use a rotary cutter to cut several of these at a time if you’d like.)

my piano2I then cut off 1.75cim from the front panel of the card only.  On the inside part that became exposed, I added the keyboard.  (When I made this card I simply googled a keyboard but I have since created my own keyboard in Photoshop).

In order to add the ribbon across, I cut another strip of the red cardstock, attached the ribbon to that, then added it to the bottom of the front panel.  I tied the bow onto that piece of ribbon.

The next step was decorating the top.  You can do this any way you like.  I liked how the same colour medallion looked.  Here are the dimensions.  It was a little bit wider than my usual 5 x 7 cards.
