It's my wonderful sister, Sine's (pronounced Sheena, it's the Gaelic spelling!) birthday on Monday and this is the card I've made for her, I hope it shows her just how much she means to me. She's not a crafter so I can share it without any danger of her getting a sneak peek! It's a tent fold card with a gatefold wrap, you can lift up the main panel to write your message.
This is how it looks on the inside. I've used a Dearie Dolls free image which is just perfect as, when we were kids, I had long wavy hair and my sis had a bob. I've coloured this with my usual Promarkers.
The papers are Papermania Boofle teamed with kraft. Sine is very much a girly girl so I chose pretty colours with cute patterns. I further girlified it with Candy Pink Stickles, pink gems, gingham ribbon, blue lace, a ton of dew drops and a heart charm. I also added some eyelets and ribbon so the card can be tied shut and also gave me somewhere to hang the charm.
The Punch Around the Page set is Martha Stewart and the corner details were made with a Marianne die, then embellished with weeny blue pearls.
I hope she likes it!
Hi, my name's Wendy Fraser, otherwise known as Papersniffer, and yes, I really do love the smell of craft paper! I'm a married, stay at home Mum of one living in Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland and I'm passionate about all thing papercraft. If I'm not crafting you can usually find me in the kitchen cooking or baking or chatting with friends over a large pot of tea.
