I hope you all had a nice weekend and a wonderful Valentines Day!
So today I'm sharing with you a card that I made for this week's Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #172-Shaped Card. It can be anything other than a square. Since I make lots of rectangles I thought I would try something new. OK, I know this piano card has been around here and there...however, I made mine from scratch. I have been wanting to make a crd like this for a very long time. I just used the standard 5 x6 size that I like and turned it sideways. It basically opens like a regular card would that you would buy from the store. The curve I just free handed and fussy cut out. Lots of cheery lynn flowers, leaves and flourishes on this card.
I made the pop up part by just folding paper back and forth. So it can be placed in an envelope and mailed. The doily I cut in half and stamped the sentiment on it. There is also a cheery lynn butterfly inside but it was hard for me to get the right angle for a photo....sorry.
Here is a closer view....also my triple bow again! This time I placed a miniature rose on top.
The piano part is a 1 inch white strip. I drew lines with a marker in black every .5 inches and then added a .25 x .75 inch cut up black paper for the keys. Pretty easy just takes a little time.
Here you can kind of see the butterfly....lol
I made my card with a third part so that is where I will place my personal sayings.
I used the Victorian romance flourish inside too, white cardstock and pink cardstock on the front.
So I was planning to use this inside on the back but it as a bit too much so I made it into a bookmark that I could send with the card, since it does match.
Another view....same size piano instructions as above and I added the scalloped punch in pink and black cardstock to enhance it a bit more.

So I hope you enjoyed my piano card today. It did take a bit longer to make, but I'm happy with the ending result.
