Naming Day Cards........for twins.


Good morning, another long weekend for us, here in the U.K. Mick and I are going to Glynn Purnell's bistro later, which we've been looking forward to for ages. Mick loves to watch cookery programmes and one of his favourite T.V. chef's is Glynn Purnell, so for his birthday, back in March, I bought him vouchers to go to his restaurant. I was hoping booking in May the weather might be better but it's cold, wet and windy, much the same as March!!!

Anyway, I'm back to show you these Naming Day cards I made for baby twins. My neighbour knocked the door a couple of weeks ago, asking if I still made cards. She had been searching for Naming Day cards in shops but could only find one and was worried that everyone would be sending them the same card.

The brief was, one for a boy and one for a girl, simple and personalised, so I pulled out two sets of my Inspired by Stamping stamps and got stamping.



I used the Fancy Alphabet set, and stamped out their names, blue for a boy, pink for a girl, I punched out the letters using a square punch. I also punched plain, coloured card with a scalloped edge square punch to mount the letters on.

I then stamped the boy and girl outfit on the hanger, from the Oh Baby set, onto white card, in black ink and cut them out. Next, I stamped the same images onto patterned paper using the same colour ink as their names. I cut around just the outfit, without the hanger and adhered to the front of the other stamped image.

I hung them with foam pads onto some twine and on my printer, printed out "On your Naming Day", to give the curved 3D look, I put two foam pads on top of each other in the centre and a glue dot at either end.

My neighbour seemed really pleased with them and I'm sure the babies won't get another card like this. Here in the U.K. it's really hard to get cards for occasions like this, Baby Showers are the same, everybody has to buy the same card. Maybe, I should specialise in these, I might make my fortune, lol.

Have a great weekend, and a fab Bank Hoiliday to my U.K. friends.
