Sisters Are Forever

 All of you out there that have sisters will know how special they are and special sisters deserve special cards. A little more effort for a lifelong friend!

Here’s how:
Using Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities - Grand Squares cut out two of the largest squares in pink to make your card base.

Cut out a smaller square in white for the main panel of the card. Emboss this panel with the Creative Expressions "Flourish" embossing folder.

I have used a strip of Creative Expressions Faux Suede Ruffle Edge ribbon as a border. 

The large butterfly I cut out three times using from Spellbinders Fanciful Flight - twice in white paper and once in the pink card stock. 

One of the layers I blended with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Spun Sugar.

When the butterflies are all fixed at the centre it gives them a 3-D effect. I then cut one of the smaller butterflies from pink card and leaves using the Spellbinders Foliage dies.

I added some die cut flowers and used my own brads for the centres - but of course you can use whatever you have to hand. 

I arranged the leaves and flowers and attached the main panel - tucking the ribbon ends behind.

Finally I cut a 2.5” square which and stamped it using the Just Rite Forever Friends stamp and frame. 

You can edge this sentiment panel with a silver pen for a framed affect. I fixed to the card and there you have it.

A very special card for a very special sister. Enjoy the card and your sister!

  1. What a pretty card - I dont have a sister but have a couple of great friends that I call my sisters so this would be a perfect card! Thanks for the inspiration - I am itching to have a go using what I have already!!
