Piano Happy Birthday

Hi everyone,

It seems this year I seem to be acquiring a number of dies with a music theme. A few months back I received some Tonic Studios music theme dies for my birthday from my daughter in London and then had to purchase the rest of the collection as I loved them so much.  Just recently I found this Poppy Stamps Happy Birthday sentiment  die done in a music theme which I thought would work well with my other dies I had. Then while at our local Papercrafts Show I found the Memory Box Piano Border die which I just had to add to my collection.

As soon as I saw the Piano Border die, I thought about making a Piano Shaped Card. I had made one many years ago so now I had the die I just had to make one. I cut my card to the desired size so the piano border would fit along the bottom and then cut around the right hand side and top to create a piano shape. The piano border is actually attached to the inside of the card and then the bottom part of the front was cut off so that the border/keys could be see when the card was closed.

I added the Happy Birthday Melody die cut on the lower part of the front of the card and then added a rose above this.

To keep the the front of the card closed when needed I added a tiny magnet under the white layer on the inside and on the inner flap. 

Here is a look at the card when it is opened to reveal the inside of the card. I stamped a birthday sentiment on the white panel and added a few music notes.

I have a piano card order and I now have to wait to make it until I have this Happy Birthday music die. I love what you did with the die on the front and the flower above it. Such a beautiful card.
