Big Sisters Rule!
And I'm not just saying that because I are one, heehee! I just think being firstborn has its advantages (as well as a few disadvantages). One of the big advantages is feeling so grown up when helping Mommy and Daddy with the new baby. Another is bossing your younger siblings around when they get older, not that I ever did anything like that. Ahem.
I made this card for the daughter of a friend who just had a baby. This little girl has been the center of the universe for a few years, and may have some adjusting to do, lol. So in addition to the "congrats on the new baby" card I sent the parents, I also sent her a card acknowledging her new role in the family.
Every little girl I know wants to be a princess, so I had to devise a crown for her card. I took a small bite out of a Gold Foil Sheet with the 1 3/4" Circle punch, and then a bigger bite (about halfway) with the largest of the Boho Blossoms Punch. All I had to do was trim the sides a bit and add some pearls and bling, and voilà - a princess crown!
Since I don't have any stamps that say 'big sister', I just printed it out on Whisper White cardstock, using the Algerian font which looks similar to the font used on the stamp.
