For the PianistA special piano card for an extraordinary pianist HAD to have something eye-catching. This pop-up piano card is the perfect design.
There are tutorials available on how to make the keys. Be aware though, the measurements may need adjusting. Now that I have corrected the errors and discarded the first attempt, I figured out how to make this work and will be able to make another.
I loved the idea of pop-up keys. For my piano, I added real music pages to the book. My recipient, who is an accomplished musician and pianist, loved his card.
Card FrontCard size is 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" when closed. My Cuttlebug and Cricut came in handy in creating the front.
For the treble clef, I created a frame and welded the clef inside with the Gypsy, then cut it from red CS. A black treble clef layered on top finished the medalion. The music notes behind the clef are from the same vellum as the music book, inside.
And of course, I had to emboss the card front with the Amadeus music embossing folder.
Difficulty LevelI would give this card a difficulty level of 8 out of 10, simply because of the keys and getting them right.
