A Record Player

Make the Cards Challenge #56

The inside

This card has been made for an ex boyfriend, who has remained in my life as a good friend. He is a classical guitarist as well as being a doctor and I thought making a card that looks like a record player decorated with a classical guitar was perfect for his birthday. We go back many years so the nostalgia of a real record player works well for both of us.

The idea for the card came from MFT and is basically a box shape that flattens for mailing. The PP is from a paper pad in my stash, the musical notes are stickers I’ve had for ages, the guitar is an unbranded die that came in two sizes and I used the larger one on this card, the sentiment is from GKD and the turntable is all from MFT. Once I had the box shape done, I added all the other elements until I was happy with it. Hope you like it and thanks for taking time to look.

  1. Johanna, this is so awesome and creative. The guitar is perfect and looks real. The added record player is an extra treat inside the card.

    1. MFT had a good video by someone on their team so I can’t take credit for the total design. I did have fun putting my own take to it though. Glad you like it.


    1. Thanks and you should have a go at making one. I’m sure you will come up with something very original.


    1. Well we are old enough to have used a record player and he is an excellent guitarist when he has time to play. Thanks.


  2. I really like this! Love the record, as well as the record player. Love that you have stayed friends for so long and that you could make the perfect card for him.

  3. Thanks Golda. He was my first boyfriend in Montreal, Canada when I arrived in late 1976 and he was instrumental in my making the friends I still have. We all did everything together in the late 70’s and we all got married to our current partners around the same time. When we get together it is pretty special as you can imagine.
