Musical Birthday

I wanted to make a "piano" card for my very gifted musical friend ... I pictured a red rose on a grand piano.

I did the piano shape with a silhouette file which I compressed so that the curve would start higher up. One of the great advantages to Silhouette - you can change the size and proportions of the shapes.

I got the inspiration and measurements of the piano keys from Dawn. She has a video too which is very helpful.

This is the front of the card ...

It opens up into an easel card as a grand piano with the "musical score" holding it in place.

But you can leave the message on the inside and the easel still holds.

My entry to ... 

... Altenew September Inspiration Challenge

... CAS Colours and Sketched #387 I flipped the design, and if you take the easel position, the piano keys are the smaller section, and the black piano top is the larger section.
