|My mother’s love for music inspired me to make a piano themed card.|
What a relief! No more gushing over her daughter online! No more excessive “Likes” and reveling embarrassing moments of my childhood.
...wait, by not talking to my mom via Facebook, I now have the desire to make greeting cards, so I can send them to her and stay connected with my family and friends.
To make this music-themed card, I cut up pieces of black and white paper to look like piano keys. I chose brown colors to represent the wood typically seen in performance halls. To dress up the card, I added a black bow to make it a black-tie affair. The music sheet paper was included to tie the theme together. This took a lot of glueing, but overall - this card was simple to make.
