A Card for Twins!


It's a gorgeous day here on the West Coast of Bonnie Scotland, just about to put a washing on and get it outside for a good airing. Then I'm off to a school coffee morning at my nephew and niece's school.

A girl that my OH works with had twins a few weeks ago and he asked if I could rattle up a couple of hand knitted things for her, and well - I just had to make a card to go along with them. This is the card I came up with:

I've never made a card for twins before, and am quite chuffed with the results. The stamps are by LCI (the sentiment is from the same set) I used a sheer ribbon and the buttons are laced through with embroidery floss. I used one of my new Spellbinders that I pur-chased at the SECC a few weeks ago for the die cutting and Promarkers to colour. Papers are from Forever Friends 'For You'.

I stamped the baby onto a piece of scrap card and cut out a wee mask. Stamped the baby on the left onto my base card, masked it with the cut-out and stamped it again. Haven't used masking much with my stamps, so am dead chuffed with the results, looks like the baby on the left is reassuring the one on the right with her wee hand :o). I used a little bit of glamour dust on the little zippers (can't really tell from the picture).

This is the wee sentiment. Ain't it cute! Used another nestie for the die cutting, but the rectangles kinda get on my nerves, coz when you try to layer with them the are a bit bigger on one side, so I hand cut round the pink matting card to make it even.

This is one of the two wee cardigans I made. Love knitting baby cardi's as you can rattle them up in no time. I also made hats but forgot to take pictures of them - doh!

Hope the parents like them and the babies are nice and cosy in their cardi's and hats.

I'd like to enter the above card into the following challenges:
