So I decided to make a musical card for her and I found this piano card tutorial on line which seemed pretty straight forward so I decided to give it a go. I started with a black card base. I cut a piece of white cardstock and added black lines with a permanent marker. I used this method of marking even spaces on a piece of paper using a ruler and it worked perfectly to define the white piano keys. I found some small scraps of black cardstock and cut them about 2/3 of the white piece and used double sided tape to glue them over the lines. I was sure to put them in the correct order by finding a piano on line and duplicating the pattern. I hand drew the grand piano shape and trimmed it with scissors. I printed the sheet music offered in the tutorial and glued it to the inside of the card. I added a small insert on the inside front of the card to write my note!! Very happy with how it turned out!!
