Here are some cards I have not shared with you before.  They are all for my music-loving friends and feature Morrissey and Keane.

I wrote this card to “the slightly orange, silent fourth member of Keane” and featured the band on the card.  Click any photo for a close-up image:

This is my Morrissey birthday card for a fellow Moz fan.  I changed the lyrics of The Smiths’ “Unhappy Birthday” song to be a bit more cheerful.  Moz is a nickname for Steven Patrick Morrissey, solo musician and former front man of The Smiths.  He is very sarcastic and melancholy, so I figured throwing a paper birthday hat on him would be silly and ironic. 🙂

I borrowed the title of a Smiths song when I referred to Morrissey as a “Handsome Devil” for the inside of the birthday card.blog-Inside of the Morrissey Birthday Card

Finally, here is a fun music-inspired birthday card for a friend.  I love the cassette tape paper!  I added some titles to a few of the cassette tapes:

If you are also a music lover and want to reflect that in the cards you make, I hope this blog post gives you some new ideas.  Thanks for reading my blog!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
