About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

JUKEBOX RETRO BIRTHDAY CARD

Jukebox Birthday


The recipient of this card loves music from the 50s. Anything from that era is always fun for him! I had it in mind to make a jukebox card but wasn't thrilled with available images.
Until THIS!

There are TONS of layers in this design. The most striking, eye-catching layer is the chrome overlay on the front.

Jukebox b-day card front, by Grace BaxterIf you know me and my card designs, it will come as no surprise that I had to make it REAL by substituting the flat gray CS suggested for gleaming chrome! 

Pictures do not do it justice.

 I love everything about this design. Directions in Design Space were very scant, so I spent some time figuring out how it all comes together. And as usual, I added a few things to the design.

The oversized RECORD was cute. When I first saw it I thought, "What am I supposed to DO with that!" It was flat and boring. I had to make it DO more!

It needed a hit song title on the front, and lyrics on the back. The lyric side is only visible if the record is turned over (obviously).



But WHERE in the world does the record go? Take a peek inside.



I love the stack of records that
show through the window.

What makes me most happy about this card is knowing that it

is perfect for the recipient. I hope he LOVES it.


Have a Musical Day!

About Me

My photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
