Lucky Thirteen x 2


Hi!  How is everyone out in blogland today?  Today I am sharing two very special birthday cards with you!  They are for my best friend's twin daughters who are turning 13!  Wow, where has the time gone!?  I can't even wrap my head around the fact that they are old enough to babysit for my child!  lol  I always make them special cards for their birthdays (as well as for their older sister who {almost} shares her birthday with Kayne).  Usually they have a theme or something they are really into but this year their mom came up blank when I asked.  They're teens, she said.  That was all I needed.  I picked out two images from JadeDragonne (I just love her art) that spoke to me of each girl's independent look and personality while sharing that special similarity that twin sisters have.

This is Sarah by JadeDragonne.  She is colored with Copics and cut and matted using the Classic Squares Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  I used another of my new La-La-Land Crafts banner dies - the Scalloped Banner.  Papers are Lily Bee Designs - Picket Fence.  Sketch is courtesy of Digi Sketch Challenge (who has an optional theme of "Cute").  Other dies used were Labels Eighteen Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and Cute Cameras Die-namics (My Favorite Things).  For embellishments I added some Tim Holtz hardware (long fasteners and label pulls) as well as flowers and American Crafts glitter chipboard number stickers from my stash.   




And for her (slightly) younger twin, The Necklace by JadeDragonne.  Again the image is colored with Copics and cut using the Classic Squares Nestabilities.  Papers are Basic Grey - Kissing Booth and the layout is from Sketch Saturday (#300).  Details here include a couple of Martha Stewart punches, more Tim Holtz hardware (metal corner and key), Stampin' Up seam binding, flowers, American Crafts glitter chipboard number stickers, and a laser cut wood veneer.  




They were delivered last night and their mom told me I "nailed it".  {Yes!}  I had a lot of fun making these, and I'm happy they were well received.  Happy 13th Birthday to my favorite twins!  It's an honor to be your "Auntie"!
