One week into the school holidays and I have found some time to craft!

I was asked to make a card for a friend who knows someone that is about to have twin boys, and this is what I came up with:

I haven't made a name card for ages, and thought that it would lend itself well to making a 'twin boy' one, and am really pleased with how the card came out.

The card was made out of linen white card, with the letters cut on the craft robo. Really simple card to make just matting silver mirror card and some blue gingham paper, and a few buttons and some straw taffeter (?) through the middle finished the card off.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards for Men - clean and simple
Creative Craft World - anything but birthdays
