So here's the story.
I have a lot of twins in my family. I feel bad for twins sometimes because people don't see their individuality. They become known as a single entity "the twins" and that goes for holiday and birthdays too, which is unfortunate.
I made a baby card that is easy to mail because on the surface it looks like one card, but when you open it, it separates into 2 distinct cards with a feminine side (baby girl) and a masculine side (baby boy). That way each person has their own special card but you don't have to pay for extra postage! This is the part where you think, "that girl Wida sure is clever." At least I hope that is what you are saying. hehe...
Gallery Idol only lets you submit one photo. But here on my blog, I can show you exactly how this card works!
Then it banner open and separates into feminine and masculine patterns and you get a peek of what's inside. I used paper from the Miss Caroline collection from My Minds Eye.
Here you can see how they overlap. I chose paper buttons for easier folding
The card then separates into 2 distinct cards. One for the girl baby...
with pink and florals and a flower tag. You can write your message along the right side. The little lamb and baby stamp is from Denami. This is the stamp set I used in both the cards.
Here is the boy version. Blue is very typical, but gray plaid? Now that's trendy! The tag is more boyish and the banner behind it has less detail.
Here is the outside of the boys side.
And here are both cards standing side by side! I hope you like my take on the challenge and vote for me! Trying hard...trying so so hard :)
Oh and the tag on the left is by Stampin' Up and the one on the right is by Tim Holtz. For the design, I cased my own card shown here.
Oh, and I called this one "TWOFER"(two-fer) which is defined as accomplishing 2 things at once, or two items for the price of one. You could use this concept for other 2 for one type of events like anniversaries where you want both people to feel special!
You can see everyone's fantastic cards here.
Thank you, thank YOU, THANK YOU,
PS. some people have been asking me what stamp I used for my card that won the top 20. It is by My Thoughts Exactly and is called "more mini thoughts". It's a great versatile set here!
