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!
