Two cards today.

My husband has a sister and a brother who are actually twins! How cool is that?!!

Every year I try to make sort of twin cards for their birthday. Here is version 2017. Which one is for the girl and which one is for the boy? :)

In both cases, it's basically a white sheet punched in all kinds of ways and foam-taped against a patterned paper background, plus a tiny banner. :)

Birthday Card for a Girl

Hello Bloggers,

a pinky card today, made for the birthday of my daughter's friend. I found this striped patterned paper sheet in one of my extremely pink paper pads the other day, and that's the design it ended up in. :)

Traditionally, I could not help adding a brighter spot to the general pastels, thus the fluffy orange cord. :)
The lace-looking Joy!Crafts 6002/0316 Border Edge die-cuts are layered to create more volume. The sentiment has three layers, a bit offset.
The flowers are handmade using several 5-petal punches, I used my dear Nellie Snellen Floral Punch Sets to cut and emboss the leaves.

Silver Wedding Anniversary Card

Hello Bloggers,

I made this card for a friend of mine, who has obviously been happily married for over 25 years now :)

25 years married!!!!! Grown up kids! But between ourselves we still call each other "girl" :)

Well, anyways, lots of silver on this card. :) Featuring the embossed and silver-gilded with Inka-Gold silver wax frame and the shiny mirri board numbers, embossed with the Fleur-de-lis pattern.

I could not help adding at least one bright flower to it.
Here is some detail from a different angle: beads, sequins, some tulle ribbon, pearls etc.
And the flowers, of course :) All handmade. This time I did not use any dies for the flowers, just punches.
