CAS(ing) Ardyth

Back in November Ardyth posted a thank you card that I loved--anything with music and I'm pretty much there.  Back then I did a quick mock up and over the holidays worked it up into the real deal.  A really really simple card.

Starting at 1/2" from the bottom, I scored the card front every 3/4" to create the illusion of white keys.  Then I cut five 2.5 x 0.5" strips of black card stock for the minor keys.  These were glued down.  As a last step I stamped the sentiment just over the top of a black key.  Next time I may stamp it in a bright color for that little pop.

The Details:  PTI white card stock, Pop Tone Black Licorice Card Stock, MFT Contempo Cage sentiment, Memento Tuxedo Black

I'm entering this in Less is More Pick a Past Sketch (#46 Music), Crazy for CAS Anything Goes, Keep It Simple #30 Anything Goes, Here Come the Boys #66 Anything Goes.

After seeing the card online, it seems drab so I've taken a pic on yellow and red.  Ardyth so had it right putting it on a bright color.  Way sassier.  I'm going to dissect and mount it on the yellow.  Or maybe the red.  I like both.  You'll just have to wait and see!
