Birthday cards for the twins

Well, it's new year and January brings 2demo's and 2 birthdays. My daughter is 40 on the 15th & her twins are 2 on the 19th.

So I am crafting with all the new lovely things from DoCrafts for January/February

First off is the lovely Anita's foiled A4 decoupage sets, the baby boy and girl ones are ideal for the twins, but also great for new babies or even cute valentines.
I started  with the A4decoupage baby boy sheet

I used some red card & papers from capsule spots and stripes 'Festive'

                                 I chose a kraft stepper 6 x 8  card for this one

Use the red card for the inside and the front flap, cover this 
With blue spotted paper that has the edges punched

I chose a topper from the A4 pack , separated the frame from the picture. 

Using an oval die, I cut down the picture and then stuck it on red card
When the frame is placed back the red shows through, adding interest and depth.

I decoupaged the puppy with a few pieces . But saved some 
For another card.

Using the urban 'typeset' stamps I stamped and embossed 'Isaac' on a label . This was placed on top of a hearts border. And another tag

I used the smaller stamps for the circular '2'
And mounted it onto a punched spotty circle

The 'heart' red pin on the 2 is die cut from the 
Sew lovely, set of dies

Finally just add a silver happy birthday peel off. 
the card for Eden, Isaac's twin sister was made in the same way, but sideways for a change
i chopped the back off of the stepper card.

this card below is a valentines card made with the rest of the decoupage kit 
left over from Isaac's card

I used the remaining pieces from the pack to make a 
Valentine Card
