So, I've had this idea in my head for quite some time to make a twins card using the "enjoy the little things" sentiment from Let it Be and the animals from To the Moon. And since I had a pocket of time yesterday afternoon, I decided to really quickly turn the idea into a card. I started with the photo frame from To the Moon, stamping it on white, then cutting a square of soft sky (which I stamped with the polka dot background from Better Together) for the inside, then stamped the giraffe twice on the soft sky and then four times on barely banana. I colored the spots with a crumb cake marker and then paper pieced the bodies and then cut out just their little heads and popped them up for some dimension. My photo frame "edging" is a square of crumb cake and I stamped the picture hanging wire directly on the card base and layered the frame below it.
The sentiment from Let it Be is stamped directly below it. As I was creating the card, I thought this was just the reminder I need on a daily basis to enjoy my little guys, who as 2 year olds can be a bit overwhelming (to put it in rose colored words). So I pulled out my new Numbers Plate from TCP and cut the number 2 out four times and glued them together to make a thicker embellishment. I stamped the 2 with the distressed polka dot back ground, too.
So there you have it... could be a card for someone expecting twins, a pick me up for a mom of a 2 year old, or even a 2 year birthday card for a little one who loves giraffes. Right now, I think I'll just put it on my mantle as a reminder.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
