The Twins are One.

Goodness how did that happen. Our neighbours twins are one yr old today. It seems like only yesterday that I was making the proud parents a Welcome to your New Baby Card .
For their Birthday Card I decided to keep to the same formula and make a 3 Fold Card by matting two card blanks together..
The digi stamps are  all from DigiStamp Boutique but only come as a black and white version so I have coloured them using my promarkers and a silver gel pen.

Here is the card folded closed. I also made a matching envelope as the card is quite bulky and needed extra room.  I spent ages going through the digi stamp company's looking for just the right images. I was pleased to see that Mr Bear was holding two balloons as I could then colour one up pink and the other blue for the recipients.


 This is the image for Ella. The pink polka dot paper was a magazine insert freebie. The multi dot by Alison Butler .
 I was really pleased to find that the images had the girl and boy holding their teddies in the opposite hands so I could easily make a right and left section up on the card with them.

 Here is the image for Henry

The blue polka dot paper was a freebie in Making Cards June 2015 and the flag paper is again by Alison Butler.
 Lastly the card showing the 3 fold opened up to show The Twins.

Love those images and the gorgeous papers used.
I seem to remember you making a card for them when they were born and can't believe it's a year already.
Nearly forgot to say I received my wonderful Butterfly winnings today thank you so much.
