Greeting Cards and Gift Candles

When It’s Nice – Do It Twice

I am an aunty of twin girls!  They are so alike in so many ways yet each has her own uniqueness.  It was a pleasure making these ‘twin’ cards in their favourite colours for their birthday.twin girls 1

I used ‘winter wisteria’ and ‘lavender moon’ for the base of these two cards.  Paper by Papertrey Ink of course.   I embossed the fronts of the two cards.

I handcut two little dresses out of designer paper.  The paper is ‘rhythm’ from Authentique’s Flourish Collection.

I added purple and pink ribbons respectively topped with sheer white iridescent ribbon around the waist of the dresses then enhanced the skirt of the dresses with little colourful gems.  Pearls create a necklace around the neckline.

Since these girls love to read, I added detachable bookmarks to the inside of the cards.  I simply perforated that part so they can be easily removed.  The bookmarks fold into the card.  The quote on the bookmarks is from Dr Suess and it says, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”  I’m sure these bookmarks will be put to good use.

  1. They love them! They especially love that it’s from their sweet Auntie who helped them to make their very own notebooks when they were in Trinidad. Thank you for these beautiful cards. They will cherish them.
