75th Birthday card for Lois

cupcake-cu_peHappy 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 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!

Gloria
