One special project was my first set of cards for the 'kids'. We've long been a comfy family of three (mom, dad, DD), but soon we'll be five and we couldn't be happier!
I love the cupcake liner pp from Pink Patterns. And I couldn't believe I found the perfect flower buttons in berry and blush. The polka dot top is glittered though hard to see.
(I got a migraine right as I was stamping the 'smiles' and adhering the diecut sentiment. I knew it was coming because I kept thinking, 'Why can't I SEE right to get this straight?" Then, bam! Migraine.)
For Twin A, Dean Michael, our first baby-boy-to-be:
I LOVE this snail (stamped in sage & aqua). The fun, wavy sentiment was the inspiration for the side border on all three cards.
A little practice at coloring with Copics, which can be trickier than you anticipate.
And for Twin B ('bee'), James Madison, our second baby-boy-to-be:
I had no idea I'd be cutting out the trail when I started but I just did it - and I love the surprise 3D curliness it has! Thankfully, these don't need to be mailed :)
Room enough for a quick welcome note once the little guys arrive.
These cards were also designed with Leish's baby card challenge in mind. Go on and join the fun over at the PTI Paper Dolls blog (link here). I made a girl card, a boy card - and a gender neutral card, since I'm thinking multiples :)
