Twin Baby Boy Card

Hi there! I am back....I spent the weekend just relaxing and taking care of a little bit of business. Thank you all so much for your well wishes. I think a few people were a little bothered by the title of the last post. I was trying to keep it a little light because when I think about the worst case scenario, I curl up into the fetal position and cry. Seriously, I had my daughter in the car on the freeway with me, I really am trying not to think about what could have happened and am so thankful to God for the protection I had that day. Whew!

A wonderful friend asked me to do a baby card to welcome twin baby boys. She also wanted their names on the card. This is what I came up with. I used some DP from Close to My Heart and the bear from Bundle of Joy (SU!). I really love brown and blue together, I think it gives a nice vintage look. I stamped the bears 3 times and colored them with watercolor pencils and an aquapen. I cut one bear in a bunch of pieces and layered it on dimensionals between the two. I used my PrintShop program to create a background that said "Snakes & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails". I cut the DP to 8 1/2 x 11" and ran it through my printer. I don't know if that shows up too well, but it looks super cute IRL. I hand lettered the baby names using the font from the background as inspiration. I inked most of the edges with ranger ink and added faux stitching 'cause I thought it needed just a little something. I think she will like it.

Thanks for stamping by!

What a beautiful twin baby card! Love the colors too. I just read your previous post...I am so happy to know that nothing worse resulted from your postponed trip to the doctor, and that you shared the information with others. I think too often we ignore the signs that our bodies try to warn us with. It is valuable information indeed! You are blessed! Hugs!

hmmmm, I need to do a card for triplets... not sure if I could fit three bears on there (I don't have this set anyway). Very cute = it's all very masculine but in a sweet baby way. Very darling!
