A layout and a card with piano keys washi tape

Hello Love My Tapes fan! It's Maya here and I am very excited to share my first project for Love My Tapes.

I was very happy to find this adorable piano keys washi tape in my design team package this month.

I immediately thought about all the choir concerts I attended in the last few years. I pulled out few pictures from my daughter's last choir concert and went to work. I paired the piano keys tape with the gold washi tape and pastel green lace adhesive tape.

I used Silhouette Cameo to cut a grand piano shape from black cardstock and used the washi tape for the piano keys.

I added few more strips of piano and gold tapes on the left of the photos and two more gold pieces in the corners of the photos. They serve as photo corners and a background for the date.

I covered a wood heart embellishment from Unique Laser Designs with two overlapping strips of gold tape and one piece of piano tape in the center. I carefully cut the excess tape with micro-tip scissors.
The lace tape fits perfectly into the theme, gives another layer of texture and serves as vertical anchor for the photos.

I really loved how the piano keys washi tape looked with piano shape and decided to make a card. I used the shape from the Silhouette online store but instead of cutting the keys from cardstock I used the washi tape with white cardstock underneath.

 I added flowers from my stash to the top of the card and music note paper to the inside of the card.

The sentiment is designed in Silhouette Studio and cut from adhesive vinyl. This card with be a perfect gift for my daughter's music teacher. I can't wait to make more!

Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear what do you think. Have a wonderful day!
