Happy birthday sista!

Yesterday was my sisters birthday and we celebrated it in the evening. I´m so glad I have a sis like her. She is one of my closest friends too! Love her!!!

I made this card for her:

The special thing about this card is that I made it with an overlay. I saw some card cut out of 12x12´´ overlays in magazines and online. But since I do most of my card like postcards I thought about using an overlay that is the size of a card (or actually a photo).

I had so much fun doing this! This way I needed to take care about the back of my card too. I don´t do backsides often and I usually don´t care about them. But here I had to. But this way you have the opportunity to see both sides of the beautiful patternd papers! :o) And here´s my backside:

I adhered the pp on the back of the overlay (with gluedots for vellum so it´s unvisible) and the stamped image and the flowers on the front. The sentiment is stamped directly on the overlay with StazOn.

I had so much fun doing this card that I´m sure I´ll do something transparent again soon. I already have something on my mind! ;o)

Have a great day!
