Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re having a most excellent week! I’ve popped in today to share an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project! I created a gorgeous birthday card featuring the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Anemone Magic washi tape and die, and all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner! My inspiration came from the Grand Piano Card tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers HERE (with a printable piano template) that was showcased in one of their newsletters several months ago. You know me and fun folds – I’m always on the search to try new ones!

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Retractable Tape Runner. Foam pads and foam strips were used to adhere the smaller flowers, sentiment strip and piano keys section for dimension. I printed the piano template on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and cut out the piano and one set of piano keys. I traced the card base and easel panel onto CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, punched a four-layer circle ‘stop’ for the easel, and assembled the card. I applied the Pinkfresh Studio Anemone Magic washi tape to 110# Solar White cardstock, cut the flowers with the Pinkfresh Studio Anemone Magic die, and adhered them to the top of the piano. The final step was adding a foiled sentiment created with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Gold Foil, Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Mini Everyday Sentiments Plate and Die Set.

I cut a panel from 80# Solar White cardstock for the back of the card (not part of the tutorial) for a handwritten sentiment and signature.

Here’s a shot showing the easel tucked under the stop for display.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I’m in love with this piano design and Pinkfresh Studio washi tape and die – and having awesome adhesive is for sure a win-win!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
