Twin Birthdays!

 I have twin nephews who live in the UK, and their 7th birthday is coming up. I always struggle a little bit with these cards - I don't want them to be the same, but I don't see them very often and therefore do not know things like favourite colours and interests very well. So I looked around for some inspiration.


For the first one, I used the sketch for this week's CASE This Sketch Challenge, a Sweet Stamp Shop sentiment and a PTI number die.




And for the second, I loosely used the artwork from the classic Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon, some Technique Tuesday stamps (after some very tricky stamp surgery) and a Memory Box number die.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon

  2. OMG ... I LOVE your Dark Side of the Moon card!!! Can you make one with a 43 on it?!: ) The tilted sketch on your first card and where you put your sentiment fit quite well.

  11. So when you say stamp surgery, did you cut some stamps apart? If so, good on you girl cuz I am always too chicken to try it!

    These cards are FABULOUS!!! Totally cool (or whatever a 7 year old might say). So bold and so graphic - love the clean lines! The twinks are gonna love them :)

    Amazing job on the Pink Floyd album cover. DH has this one, in pristine condition, tucked away in a safe place (along with a ton of Beatles albums too)
