It's been ages since I played along with the challenges at Lulupu, but this fortnight's challenge-- Black-n-white with a pop of colour--had my creative juices flowing. So I made a card ( No surprises there, I know!!) which is not CAS ( NOW you are surprised, aren't you?? :P) .
Also linking it to Seize the birthday Challenge--Anything goes(No toppings, please)
Please have a look.
I saw this card on the Pinterest but haven't found any tutorials for it. There are some templates available for making this kind of card, but I found it difficult to stick to those measurements so I went with my own.
|A pocket with a tag inside|
The shape of the card and the black-n-white keys are cut with the help of my craft scissors. The musical sheet that is stuck over the inner side is hand-drawn ( the one you see on the card box is a printout I had been hoarding since long).
|Closer view of the quilling|
The flowers on the outer panel of the card are quilled using 3 mm quilling strips from the yellow family pack.Added a pocket inside the card for a sentiment tag(and any personal note if you wish) to be inserted. Finished it off with pearls.
I made this card for my younger brother who celebrated his 24th birthday this month. He loves music, so I planned to go for this piano card. You must be thinking -a card for a guy and flowers?? Well, my brother is a biggest admirer and critic of my work, and he likes to see my quilling, so for this particular card, I went beyond the general limitations of gender stereotyping(no butterflies or flowers for a man, pink for girls and blue for guys) and went ahead with what I believed would make him happy. :)
