Twin Baby Boys

This is my 2nd post today, please scroll down for my shaped card. :)
I was asked by D's sister-in-law to make 2 baby cards for her friends (my first ever order:). I'll show you one of them now, the more tricky one for me. :) First it had to be a masculine card and not only for one baby boy but two! Fortunately, she told me a bit about her friend so I knew I had to work with warmer tones (which I like better too). But somehow the card had to express that it was about twins and I wasn't allowed to write anything on it! I don't have any baby-related stamps but then I remembered I bought some wooden teddy bears for occasions like this half a year ago. Heehee I wanted to put a ribbon on it to 'balance' the card but since it's a masculine card I didn't make a bow. Just glued one end in the inside, the other end on the card and cut a V-shape into it. Hmm, something's missing. Of course, a button! And still I wanted to make an itty-bitty bow on it. LOL But I think it didn't ruin the masculinity of the card at all. :)



I'd like to enter this card into the CAS-Friday - CFC77 and the Lawnscaping - Dust 'Em Off challenge.
