Joy Fold Perfect for a Special Sister

My sister, Diane is more that just a sister.  She is a friend and an integral part of Flourishes.  She has designed or digitized many of our sets.  Coffee with Friends is the work of her wonderful hands.  She is also a confidante, even though younger she is often a mentor and advisor.  She is a fellow artist, an artist in many rights….her glass etching is incredible, she makes wonderful fun loving dolls.  I think there may be no end to her blessings in creative venues.

Needless to say a birthday card for her would have to be, well as we often say…”Over the Top” .  I think this one will fit the bill……So here this one is for you Diane…..Happy Birthday!


I think she will like it….don’t you?

Of course it had to be just as special inside so I used the Designer Papers from Memory box that we carry at Flourishes.  So using the same paper on the inside, simply switching the orientation made it just different.


As you can see I used the Flourishes Damask on the Rose Red, layered on Black.  The small card is made from the Kraft card stock overlaid with the same designer paper.  The simple Happy Birthday and the Celebrate are from Flourishes Many Sentiments and were stamped in Rose Red.



One last look at the the front of the card, shows some of the special touches I added.  I used my White Essentials pen (Flourishes) to highlight the details on the card.  The pearl was just the finishing touch on the brad and was the “Over The Top—AH moment that made this card perfect for my special sister, Diane.  I hope your day has been a wonderful one!

Thanks for visiting the Atelier today.
