Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun
Growing up, the idea of twins was sort of abstract. The Doublemint Gum girls were the model until around fourth grade when I met my first set. I felt almost cheated when they weren't identical (fraternal twins? That's not right!).
All these years later, the occurrence of twins doesn't see so uncommon. In fact, I know of three sets of twins born/expected this year alone! Come to think of it, I still haven't met a set of identical twins in person. I imagine my inner child's utter disappointment LOL.
Today's card is for all of the amazing and strong twin moms out there!
Seeing Double with the Stamp-a-ma-jig
I knew I wanted to make this card when I first saw the Moon Baby Set. Due to the set being red rubber, achieving this image took an extra tool. If you haven't heard of the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, please allow me to introduce you!
The concept has been around for a long time, but Stampin' Up!® has made a tool which is small and portable, and very user friendly.
Fun Fact: Using Archival Basic Black ink gives a clean image that won't smudge on your window sheet.
It's a Twin Thing
I have a theory that the lack of greeting cards for twins is due to the various combinations; boys, girls, one of each? The baby industry loves all things pink and blue. I tend to try to include Team Green in my baby designs unless I already know the sex of the baby in question. This comes in handy with the popularity of gender reveal parties.
For my coloring, I used Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Night of Navy with Aqua Painters. I'm sure you've noticed by now that I am completely obsessed with them! The background comes from the Coffee Break Designer Paper Stack, and my watercolored titles are propped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Hopefully this comes in handy the next time you have a baby shower for not one, but two bundles of joy! Thanks for stopping by!
