Well after the excitement of announcing my blog candy winners (see post below) I thought I would show you what I have just been working on.
My sister asked me if I could do a couple of birthday cards for her twin nephews. The only requirement was that one of them had to be in blue. I decided to make two cards exactly the same in design and layout but different colours. Here is what I came up with.
I used a stamp set that I have had for absolutely ages but find so useful for boy cards. I think it was from Stamp-It and it contains the little shirt, the two sentiments and the little stars that are on this card. I stamped the shirt onto white card and then paperpieced using some patterned paper. The two sentiments were stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder. The plain cardstock is coredinations. All of the papers are from Papermania. The addition of some ribbon and little peel off circles completed the look.
Here are the two cards together:
