This is the card I made for my kiddos’ piano teacher. It has an action wobble on the front and a hidden gift card on the inside.
Inside of Card
Size: Horizontal side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began this card by cutting two 4.25 x 5.5 inch panels from some water color paper. One panel is for the front of the card; the other is for the inside.
I used a stitched hillside border to cut the front panel. From the top part of the panel, I also die cut some stitched circles. I used versa mark ink and white embossing powder to add stars or music notes. I used Distress Inks as water colors to create my night sky. The embossed resist worked beautifully. I added a light blue was to the bottom of the panel for interest. Once dry, I adhered all of the pieces to a white card base.
For the inside panel, I used the Ellen Hudson Zipper Panel Die to create the hidden chamber. I adhered this panel to the inside of the card base.
On a scrap of water color paper, I stamped the penguins in Versa Fine ink and clear embossed them. I used the same Distress Inks to water color them in. Once dry, I fussy cut everything out leaving a small white border. I adhered the penguins to my card using liquid glue. I used a mini action wobble on the penguin playing the guitar.
Lastly, I added the sentiments and a few music notes in black ink.
