Hello Honey Bee friends! Ilda here, and today I have made a few examples of how to create some simple Piano Cards for any occasion.

CARD DETAILS

For my first Piano card, I decided to make it into a Birthday Card.

To begin all off these cards I stamped out the piano keys from the MUSIC SPEAKS multiple times onto a card panel and then used my trimmer to cut them along the stamped edge. You can make these cards horizontal or vertical, either way, all you do is glue the keys along the bottom of a black card base. The horizontal keys fit perfectly onto an A2 card base, on a vertical card base, I just trimmed off the excess as I did in the next few cards.

The next thing I did was stamp the musical notes from the MUSIC SPEAKS set onto black cardstock and then heat set them in using white embossing powder. For this birthday card, I also stamped out the “Happy To You” using stamps from the HAPPY BIRTHDAY set.

To finish the greeting on the center of this card I stamped out the scripted Birthday and then used the coordinating HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY CUTS to die cut it out and then colored the dotted shadow layer using Copic markers in rainbow colors.

Once the top panels were done I added foam tape to pop up the card panel and then trimmed off the excess.

TIP: When creating cards with a black card base it looks nicer if you don’t see a white foam tape from a side view angle. So to fix that I use the broad tip of my black Copic marker and run it along the foam tape while it’s still on the roll. I then just color the snipped end if is visible from the side of the card.

These two cards were made exactly the same way as the birthday one but vertically. To these, I stamped a few greetings from the ROCKSTAR SENTIMENTS stamp set. I also added a couple of white satin bows and some CRYSTAL PRISM GEM stickers for shine.

For a little pop of color, I added a couple of die cut hearts that I had previously die cut from the BUSY BEE set. To the hearts, I added some Liquid Pixie Dust and then finished them off with a layer of glossy accents.

I hope you were inspired by these Simple Musical Piano Cards. I think these would also make great cards for a music teacher or any music lover in your life. Thanks so much for stopping by today and until next time, happy crafting!
