Elegant lady?

 Hi everyone, I want to thank you all for your suggestions on remembering birthdays, that I asked about a few weeks ago. I think I'll try a couple, at least one of them should work ay?

My card today was for one of my SiLs, I saw this file recently and had to have it, I followed the suggested colours, but changed them slightly.

The whole file was taken into my Silhouette and I cut each piece out. Putting them together, I inked some edges. It was quite straight forward, like die cuts, when I put the pieces together on my desk first. I was lucky to find in my paper pads a similar pattern for the collar and sleeves. The grey pieces are silver mirror card. 

I wanted some sort of sentiment and found one that I had bought in a recent sale, just perfect methinks. I couldn't add it to the curved section of the main card, so stamped it on the same card, cut to fit, and added it to the corner.

I know a lot of you won't understand my liking for my Silhouette, but I love it, and appreciate how it can cut any size I want. I only hope my SiL will like the card.

Lovely make, I know your s-i-l will love it!
I must have missed you asking for suggestions, was it about remembering to make or mail cards? I have a 6x6 (12x12 paper folded and stapled) with each month on a page where I record each person's birthday. Then, I use that to type in their birthdays on a monthly calendar that I download online free and then save and print. I can print 3 months at a time on one letter size sheet and I hang that up next to my monitor. I never add a new birthday on the printed sheets, also in my 6x6 master book! I've had a few mix ups but overall it's worked great for me. Hard part is looking AHEAD on the calendar to mail on time, lol. XOX

It’s a fantastic card Faith, I love the art deco look, the image is wonderful. I’m surprised my Silhouette Cameo hasn’t worn out as I use it so much, my best craft purchase ever xx

Your card is truly impressive! The careful assembly and thoughtful choice of colors and papers make it a standout piece, and the sentiment adds the perfect finishing touch. I'm sure your sister-in-law will love it!

Pat said...

This is beautifully put together Faith and a pretty image with a fun sentiment...I'm sure your SIL will love it this wonderful card. Sorry your original calendar for birthdays etc has changed to something different which isn't so user friendly. I usually use a calendar I have hanging in the kitchen which has all the card dates and names of recipient hightlighted..a bit basic but it mainly works. x

Very chique lady on your card. Just wish I was handy with the silhouette, but I use other things for my cards.
Great sentiment!
