Birthday Card for Tracy

Here is a card I created for my daughter-in-law, inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoast. She is a music teacher specializing in piano and guitar. I always try to make her a card with a music theme. Her birthday is on May 5th. That happens to be the same day as my sister's birthday, which is the next card I hope to get done ahead of the game.

I embossed the silver background paper with my Cuttlebug music notes embossing folder. The red patterned paper is from Paper Pizzazz that I bought at JoAnn Fabrics. The musical notes are eyelets from Eyelet Outlet and the piano is a brad that was in my stash. The Happy Birthday is an acrylic stamp that I think came from Archiver's. The ribbon was a scrap I had that just seemed to fit with the rest of the card. I hope she likes it.

On to the next birthday card.


  1. This is a gorgeous card Emily - I'm sure she'll LOVE it. I haven't got that cuttlebug folder - it looks fabulous!!

  2. That is awesome!!! I have that paper, but haven't been sure what to do with it! What great ideas you've starting ;)
