It's been nice to just relax and not rush around like I tend to usually do.
So here are the cards I've made. They are a request from someone who works with my sister. A family friend has just had twins, a girl and a boy. So there is a personalised card with the babies names, Brodie and Amber and the date they were born, 31.07.11.
I used an A4 piece of white card and scored it into a gatefold card. I covered each side of the gatefold with plain coloured card, a green and blue for Brodie's side and a pink and lilac for Ambers side. I cut two pieces of gingham ribbon and attached each to the back of the coloured card. I used two Kanban decoupage images of babies and attached to the card using 3D foam. I then decorated each side with baby embellishments made from a cuttlebug die and ones from my stocks. I also used small gems to decorate the card. I used silver peel offs to spell out the babies names and the date of their birth. I also printed the sentiment "Congratulations On The Birth Of Your Twins".
I also made a card for the grandparents of the babies. For this card I made a DL card and covered it in pink and blue paper. I then attached two Kanban decoupage baby images and attached them with 3D foam to the card. I attached 2 pieces of white Card Candy and 4 adhesive gems to the card before finishing it with a printed sentiment which says "To The Proud Grandparents".
Tomorrow I'm hoping that I'll be able to get a good crafting day done. Haven't had one in a long time so hopefully I'll get quite a bit done tomorrow, or if not this week!
Bye for now. xxx
