I have a total of seven sister-in-laws! I'm sure someone else on the planet has me beat, but that's a lot to be sure. Their birthdays start in May and go through October; therefore, there will always be at least one sister-in-law birthday card for each month for six months of the year! I never have the excuse that I have no birthday card to make that is for sure. I only have one brother, so only one of the seven falls on my side of the family...the other six belong to my husband's side of the family!
My first sister-in-law birthday card to start off each year is in May and is for my brother's wife, Diane. This year, I made her a "flower" card, featuring a stamp that allows the two-step stamping technique. I then cut the completed stamped image out with a Spellbinder Label die, and finally, I sponged its surface lightly around the edges before removing the Spellbinders die. I love the white edge this leaves around the sponged image, almost making it a frame. I hope Diane liked her card.
