Twins? Yes! No!

Hi, everyone!

It's the Blog Hogger! Today I want to share with you two cards I made for my twin nieces. They are turning 20 years old next week.

If any of you have twins in your families you'll understand that, although they may look alike, they have very different personalities! When they were little, their mom dressed them the same, although each had favorite colors they liked to wear. Once they hit their teen years, however, that went out the window and they experimented (and continue to experiment) with, among other things, different hair colors. One likes the outdoors, hunting and all things country, while the other is girlie and enjoys doing her nails, makeup, etc.

So, of course, their birthday cards needed to express their individual styles..

Here's the first card:

I made the rectangle with Soft Suede ink applied directly onto a size 'D' clear block. Then I stamped a tree from the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set over it using Chocolate Chip ink. As (hopefully) you can see, I used some silver and gold emboss powder to highlight random sections of the tree. The cardstock used is Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.

Here's the other card:

This one uses Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride and a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I also used Chocolate Chip ink and some random Designer Paper. My favorite part of this card is the "icing" and "candle" punched out using the Cupcake Builder punch and Silver Glimmer Paper.

Here's a shot from the side so you can see how it, and the designer paper, shimmers:

So, are they for twins? Yes! Are the cards the same because of that? No! Titled explained! lol

Individual hugs for everyone,
