I made these cards for my friend's twins. They celebrated their first birthday last weekend. Unfortunately I wasn't on time with my cards, but today I had some time to make them a card. I followed the sketch from Mojo monday and used this fabulous image from Mo Manning for my cards. Just perfect for the girls. I mirrored one of the images and editted it a bit so the one on the cupcake was still facing the right way. I coloured the images with derwent and caran d'ache pencils. I coloured the eyes with a black glaze pen. I used a clear spica glitter pen to color the dresses and the little bows. I cut the images out with my circle nestabilities. I embossed the square with the swiss dots embossing folder from cuttlebug. On one card I used a pink striped background and on the other a purple gingham background. I made the names of the girls with the phoebe alphabet from quickutz. The sentiment ( congratulations) is a stamp from Stamping Bella. Unfortunately the pictures aren't that great.
