TWIN GIRLS IN THE FAMILY

Two weeks ago, twin girls were born to my cousin Mark and his wife, Holly. So exciting! I know this card has been done a zillion times but I just had to make one for them with a twins twist to it! I think the original designer of this awesome card is inkydigits on SCS ... you can see her card HERE.

I'm not sure if you can tell in this photograph or not, but the bottom Whisper White CS panel is meant to look like wanes cotting by scoring every 1/8" inch with my Scor-Pal. The hangers were created using Wire Works, a retired SU product. The Duckies Stampin' Around Wheel was stamped in Versamark onto the So Saffron CS, and the onesies from the stamp set, By Ones & By Twos (retired) were stamped in Basic Black onto Pretty In Pink Prints DP (retired), cut out and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

Edited to Add: Tracy, a loyal iSTAMP reader, made the hangers with a standard paper clip and said it worked perfectly!

RECIPE
Stamps: By Ones & By Twos (retired), Duckies Stampin' Around Wheel (retired)

Nancy - I really think this is the cutest version of this card I've seen! Really looks like a nursery room wall - with the wanescotting & the way you've "lifted" the chair rail & the "peg board." And the subtle boarder above the chair rail is the perfect touch. I just love it!
