Birthday Wishes For My Sister-In-Law

2012 Faves

I needed a birthday card for my sister-in-law so took advantage of this sketch to make her one.  She loves feminine cards so I tried to make it work for her.

I ventured way out of my norm for this card as there are a total of eleven layers (if you include the leaves and flowers).  Think that is a record for me!  Good thing it's going to be a hand delivery LOL!

Verve's Love Deepens  is such an amazing set!  It has a ton of wonderful  sentiments you can add names to and Julee thought of every combination: Cousin, Aunt, Uncle, In-Law, Grandparents, Great Grandparent, Sister, Brother, Friend, Niece, Mom, Mum (love it spelled that way), Wife, Godparent, you name it, it's in that set!! The Spellbinders heart circle acted as my "doily" and I went from there.  Some rolled some roses, a butterfly and ruffled ribbon dressed it up.

I'll find out if she likes it this weekend when we have our August/September family birthday get together.  There are four birthdays to celebrate and I'm looking forward to some good food and a great evening together :)

Stamps:  Love Deepens (Verve)
Paper: Sahara Sand, Kraft, Burgundy, Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss, Cream Linen

It's gorgeous Marisa. I'm sure you SIL will love it. 11 layers is really a lot, but the card does not "look" heavily layered.

I am sure she will absolutely love it. And wow 11 layers! That is incredible. I love the circle die with the hearts.

Benzi said...
