My twin nieces will be 2 next Sunday, so Mum asked me to make a card for her to give to them (I still have my own to do!). I thought this wee LOTV image was very suitable for twin girls and I matched it up with pink paper from my latest Papermania pad and some Docrafts lemon linen effect card. I used a Nestabilities die for the scalloped mat and a SU punch. The butterfly is an x-cut punch and the ribbon is from SU. I printed the sentiment on the computer and cut it out using a SU punch. For the layout I followed the sketch on this week's Friday Sketch Challenge. As I have used a couple of dies I am entering this weeks Allsorts Challenge - 'Any die will do,' and I can also enter the CCT challenge - 'Here comes summer,' and the LOTV one - 'Time to play.' The colours look a bit strange - I thought I would just use natural daylight, but it has turned out very grey! I've also managed to cut off the top and bottom of the shaped card (from Craftwork cards).
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
