Piano U Fold Box Birthday Card

I am working in my Craft room today!  It's cloudy and rainy and a great day to stay inside and play!  In my last post, I had made a U Fold Box Card into a kitchen theme for my sister's birthday.    I was trying to come up with more ideas for this fun card and a Piano popped into my head.  I made this card with no one in particular in mind so I haven't added a sentiment but it will be ready when I need it! 

I used several dies to make this card.  The windows were made with a Memory Box die along with the Piano keys ( I cut them down a bit).  The back of the piano is made with a Tim Holtz die ( cut down a bit).  I used an Impression Obsession die for the cats!  The flowers in the windows are from Stampin up- the new Bike Ride Stamps/Dies.  The Greenery in the pots are from Memory Box too!

This technique is fun because it has a 3 D look to the card.  Once you push the piano keys down - it locks the card in place!

I love the fact that it will collapse and can be mailed to someone!  You just have to lift up the piano keys and flatten it.  

I haven't completed the back but there is plenty of room to add your sentiment and more decorations!  I think I will let the cats travel to the back too!  If you want to go to the link with the tutorial- check out my last post.

The only change I made to my card is the height.  I made my card 5 inches tall just to get more room for the Happy Birthday and the windows.   I am working on another  U Fold Box card and will share it once it is finished.  Happy Crafting!
