Happy Birthday, Sis!
My good friend, Lois, whom I like to think of as a sister I chose for myself, just celebrated her 75th birthday. Because we live hundreds of miles from each other, we weren’t able to be together to celebrate her big day. So, I did the next best thing (as all card-makers do), I made her a special birthday card.
This gorgeous cupcake image is by Vanilla Arts Co. I just discovered them a couple of weeks ago and I am in love with their images…but, I digress.
I decided to make an easel card so that Lois could stand it up easily on a table or shelf. The best part of making this card was, as always, colouring it with my Copic Markers. Here are some photos of the finished card…
Isn’t this a beautiful image? It was such a delight to colour.
Here is a view of the card in the easel position.
Here is the card opened to display the inside messages.
As it happens, Lois is in the process of making some big life changes and I wanted the messages in my card to be encouraging to her as she works through the decision-making process. I just know that this coming year is going to be fantastic for her!
So, that’s it for this time. I hope this inspires you to make a card for someone special in your life.
Until next time, happy card-making, and have a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!
