Special Card for a Special Guy

My cousin is a piano teacher and he is celebrating a birthday so I made this special card just for him.

Music Birthday 3

This is such a unique fold. The back pops out when you open it so that the sentiment is like a diorama. Another fold idea I got from Julie Davison. 

Music Birthday 2

I really liked the look of Very Vanilla and Black with the music paper.


Products used:

Stamp Sets – Rose Wonder, Watercolor Wings

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Craft White

Paper – Very Vanilla, Black, Modern Medley DSP

Accessories – Circle Card Thinlits, Ornate Tag Punch, Baker’s Twine


This is really a fun fold and very easy. Check out Julie’s YouTube video 

Be back tomorrow for “a bit o’ the green”!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Maria, thank you for your lovely comment. You were correct with the name. I’m Donna but I linked you to Julie Davison’s video so I wouldn’t have to explain how to make the card. 🙂 So, you’ve thanked both of us now. All good.

  2. Ooops!!!!! please forgive me, I don’t know why I wrote the wrong name on my comment, sheeesh!! I guess it still way early here and my coffee has not kicked my senses in yet.

  3. Hello Donna: I’ve come from Mary’s blog to tell you that your diorama card is AWESOME!!! what a unique fold, I love it that when you open it turns into a 3D box but it can be closed for mailing, this is just fabulous.
    Thank you for the video, your explanations are spot on PERFECT!!
    Maria Rodriguez.
