Artistic Etchings Birthday

It is my twin neice's 15th birthday today and I have just finished making a card for them.  Ever since they were babies, Ilke has always been the 'blue' twin and Zoe, the pink one!  I remember when they were little, if you put food on the wrong colour plate they wouldn't eat it as they thought it wasn't theirs!  They have grown since then, but they secretly cling to the idea as they often wear the same style clothes only a different colour.

I made this card using the Artistic Etchings stamp set which I love.  The Eiffel Tower is relevant to them as their dad is taking them on a 2 week tour of Europe, darling!  Wow.  When I was 15, we went camping at Woy Woy for our holidays!

I used Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze cardstock teamed with Very Vanilla.  I used my ever-handy Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the Eiffel Tower in the middle and also the letters from the Sweet Shoppe stamp set.  The inks were Crumbcake, Early Expresso, Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze.  The background stamp is En Francais.

Better go and wrap their presents.

I have bought a tiny stapler, so folding back the cardstock and stapling it to 'reveal' another faux layer is my new favourite thing.
