Happy Birthday!

Best of Flowers, Music cards, Stampin' Up!This is the birthday card I made for my amazing cousin, Sue.  She was also my piano teacher from the time I was almost five through my final year in college.  She is an incredible musician, but also one of the most wonderful women I know.  She is just below my parents as one of the most influential people in my life.

For this card, I cut the piano shape and the keys freehand.  I embossed the top of the piano with black embossing powder, and sponged Crumb Cake ink on each white key (actually Very Vanilla) to age them a little.  The flowers (Best of Flowers) were embossed in black powder, then colored with Stampin’ Write markers and aqua painters.

This is a tri-fold card.  I used a 12″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla core’dinations paper, and folded it into three 4″ panels.  The folded panel is covered with Modern Medley designer series paper so it shows behind the piano.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy, and have a wonderful day!

    Thanks, everyone! This was inspired by a card on Pinterest, but I made sure the keys were correct. Holy cow! I saw so many “piano cards” with crazy keys – one black one, then 4 black ones then a group of two…Figured since I am a pianist and I’m sending this to my teacher, it had better be correct!
