The last few weeks have been so busy that I've only created for my DT commitments. I love creating for my design teams, but on the weekend, I had some time to create just for me, so I went looking for inspiration. I was perusing the Make The Cut forum and saw this file that Andy (MTC's creator) had made. All I can say is "Wow!!"
I immediately went to try it out and this is the result. This evening I made the front of the card... (be sure to look further... the best is yet to come!!)
I used pinkpaislee "London Market" 6x6 DP. I LOVE this paper!!! The BG paper is embossed with Paper Studio "script" folder, the stamps are 7 Gypsies cling stamps, cut out with Spellbinders Labels Four and a Fiskars punch, and ribbon from my stash.
Up close of the heat embossed treble clef.
NOW for the best part... the inside!!!
Yes, it really is a pop up grand piano!! How awesome is this?????
I colored it with my Spectrum Noir black marker and meant to go back and even it out, but forgot. I'll do that before I send it. I used a white gel pen on the "keys." Inside sentiment is Paper Trey Ink.
Here is the link to the MTC file... 3D Grand Piano Popup Card
This was my first try. I will try to find heavier cardstock the next time even though this was ok. The heavier, the better. This is only 80 lb. and Andy recommends 100 lb or 110 lb.
Paper Pretties PWC 260 - embossing (I did both dry and heat)
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
I cannot wait to make more of these!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
