Baby Shower Card for boy/girl twins

Friends of my husband are expecting twins and we were invited to a Jack and Jill baby shower. I made this card to celebrate the boy and girl that they are soon going to welcome into their family.

Card is A2. Stork is cut out at 3.5 inches. Babies are just over an inch (I think). I used colored pencils to edge all of the shapes.

If I had to do it over, I would add texture to the blankets and hat. It is definately missing something.

Card base and mat are DCWV
babies and blankets are PTI
stork cut out from scraps
Ribbon is recollections.

Baby Cards

My MIL loves to give homemard cards so she often comes to me with requests. This time it was baby cards for two showers she was invited to. Here's what I came up with ....

This one is for a boy. I used the onsie SVG file that I downloaded here -

paper is DCWV
buttons from PTI
stamp is from My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions set

The next one is for a girl

Paper is DCWV
Button is PTI
Ribbon from Michaels
Onsie cut from New Arrival
Scalloped Ovals from Gypsy Wanderings
Martha Stewart border punch (I don't remember the name - why don't they print it on the punch itself?)
Stamp from Recollections Sweet Baby Girl set

I loved the card designed by Kristine Reynolds in the March 2011 issue of CardMaker magazine (page 58). I scraplifted the design, just suited it to my needs and my supplies.
