Happy Birthday to a Special Sister


My sister, Sandi, had a birthday last Saturday, and I made a card for her. (Of course I did! Duh!) Hopefully she will have it by now ( it was only a few days late...) and I can share it with you. My sister is the glue that holds us all together. She makes sure we stay in contact with each other and she fixes many problems we might have! She loves the outdoors, her animals and her friends. She makes you happy just talking to her! I was thinking outdoors and fall colours when I designed her card using the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.


  • The style of this card's background is known as Collage Stamping, where you stamp several different images on the same layer, overlapping some, using sponging, splotches, spritzes, etc to unify them. Awesomely Artistic is the greatest set if you like collage stamping!
  • The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Everyone stamp set and it is BIG, BOLD, and BEAUTIFUL! Of course, with a busy background, you need a large bold sentiment or it would get lost. 
  • The Lots of Labels Framelit Dies are my current most popular set. I used the same size for the greeting and the backing. I just used my old trick of cutting the backing in half and mounting each end on the ends of the sentiment.
There you have it! Happy Birthday, Sandi!

Love the collage of images on your background. What a great way to show off the sentiment!
