Birthday Cards For Twins

These are two cards I made for twins who turned 11 yesterday. I like to make their cards the same but different, if you know what I mean. This is made easier as one is a girl and one is a boy.
For Jake's card I used my Cricut to make a Happy Birthday aperture in a sheet of double sided patterned paper. I used one of my Woodware stamps of the boy on the beanbag and did some paper piecing to make the colours match. I stuck some buttons over the circles on the patterned paper to add a bit of dimension. For Grace's card, I used my Cricut again to make the Happy Birthday aperture card. I added a little girl image by Sugar Nellie and some Prima flowers to add dimension.
I did mean to put their names on too but unfortunately I ran out of time and had to post them without. Never mind, maybe next year I'll be more organised.
Stamps: Woodware ~ Sugar Nellie
Coloured with: Paper Piecing ~ Distress Ink
Equipment: Cricut ~ ZooBalloo Cartridge
Embellishments: Buttons ~ Prima Flowers
