2 Very Special Birthday Cards.

Today is a very special day because we celebrate two very special young ladies' birthdays. I have the privilege to know these amazing twin sisters who love each other very much, love their parents, and love others. Their beauty truly shines from within. Inspired by their different personalities and preferences, I made the cards that I'm posting today.

Supplies needed for this card
Paper: cream, antique pink, and brown cardstock, vintage roses and clear velum paper
Tools: Cutting/embossing machine, Swiss polka-dots embossing folder, floral and plain oval dies, crochet hook (1.40mm) and cream thread #10
Embellishments: Crochet lace, pink ribbon, vintage and brown pearls

Supplies needed for this card
Paper: Black, glittered black, red and white cardstock, leopard, and specialty red paper
Tools: Square, and balloon punches, hot glue gun, hot glue, 3D circle foam adhesive, silver fine thread.
Stamp: 'Have a Great Birthday'
Embellishments: Sparkly white, red gemstone and black flowers, clear gemstone, black pearls, black lace, shoe sticker. 

I made the crochet lace for the first card, and I will post the pattern for you soon.
Get to know your friends' likes and dislikes. It is so much more fun to personalize a card/ gift with their preferences. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you have a wonderfully blessed day.
