Don't you love humorous cards? I have a reputation for somewhat irreverent card-giving, and it can be hard to keep up with expectations 'cause Hallmark and I are not always on the same page. So, I go to the drawing board and make something when necessary. For instance, last week my gal pal Suzanne celebrated her birthday and because she's a music-lover (and a Choral director) I wanted to give a card that spoke to her.
So, here's what I came up with...
I even created it as a printable so YOU can give one to your music-loving, big-bootied friends!
You can check out the printable version of the "Baby got Bach" card here.
The card is formatted to be printed as a 5x7 image, then you can simply fold it into a card and trim the small excess of cardstock on the edges to make it just the right size. The printable card is only available in black and white (since I only have a black and white printer). To all of you who have plain printers like me but love free printables, you're welcome!
I used Sharon's mod-podge coaster idea to create some special coasters, too. Suzanne loved them and plans to put drinks on them. That was supposed to be funny, but whatever. I think stating the obvious is hilarious. Maybe you don't. That's ok. I still think it's funny.
Houndstooth ribbon was the perfect ribbon to tie up these little gems with. I love me some houndstooth.
On the inside of the card, instead of writing something lame like "Happy Birthday" in plain English, I wrote out the first line of the happy birthday song... you know, 'cause I'm speaking Suzanne's language!
And there you have it--the perfect gift for your musically inclined friends. Boo-yah!
(And Happy Birthday, Sue-Sue!)
