Litle Things X 2

Hi friends!  The current Diva Dare is entitled Little Things and is to make a baby or kids themed card using at least one Verve product.  We'd love for you to play along, and don't forget to stop by the Verve Blog as the Divas post their answers to the dare.  (We had a little scheduling break, but should be back on track later today with the next installment.)

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!
