Peas in a Pod


Hi there!

I hope you are all having a good weekend. We had a much needed quiet day at home today. We did some chores that needed doing and I had a little inky time. Last night I went to see Motherhood the musical! It was hilarious! I laughed a lot and really enjoyed myself. It finishes tomorrow, so if you haven't seen it, unfortunately you may have missed out, unless they bring it back.

This afternoon my friend asked me to make a card for her SIL who is having twin baby boys. I was a little worried at first that I would lack inspiration. I pulled out my baby stamps and was looking at the So Cute set when I had a brainwave. There is a cute little pea pod stamp in this set...two peas in a pod....light bulb moment.

I decided to make a punch art pea pod, with two peas inside, signifying the twin boys.



I used the Nursery Suite DSP with some Pear Pizzazz and Baja Breeze CS.


I remembered that I had these little plastic dummies in my stash, and thought it would be cute to add two of these. I made a tag and hand wrote 'Two peas in a pod' onto it and tied it to the dummies and a blue bow. Here is a close up of the detail.


I decorated the inside of the card using matching DSP and used the little pea pod stamp from the So Cute set. I used markers to ink up the stamp, as I wanted to do the pea pod in green and the writing in blue.


I also used the same stamp to very simply decorate the envelope. I stamped the image twice to symbolise the 2 sweet peas that will be arriving!


I am really happy with this card, hopefully my friend will be as well!

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment if you have the time, they really make my day! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!
