As soon as I knew the genders, it was time to set to work on creating a card for their arrival. I originally planned to do one card for both, but it ended up being easier to create one for each in the stereotypical blue and pink colours.
I had recently purchased a gorgeously cute teddy stamp and I wanted to use this.
I set to work on the little girl card first. As you will know, I have become a little too obsessed by shaker cards!! I really wanted to add a little bit of shaker and so created this as a heart shaped balloon. Another technique I wanted to try, was to do some paper piercing. I had some fab patterned paper that was dying to be used. I found some suitable for both cards.
Here is the little girl card -
And here is the little boy card which I am also entering in to Casology's challenge which is 'Pet'….pet teddy???
Both teddies were given a little glossy accents on their noses in order to give them that little bit of something special.
I now need to get the cards posted as the babies are already 10 days old!!!!!!
Many thanks for looking. Any comments are so very much appreciated.
