The twins are turning 21!

Hi there!

When I saw the challenge at Less is more to make a masculine card this week, I thought it was  a great opportunity to make the cards my mom asked me to make, for my twin nephews who are turning 21 . Their birthday is only in January, but since I will be off to South-Africa in a couple of weeks for a wedding, I will pop it in my luggage  and show it here, because I am totally sure they have better things to do than visit their aunt's blog !!!

Although they are twins, this 2 brothers not only look completely different, they have quite opposite personalities and interests ! I tried to capture that in their cards, but also wanted the cards to have the same "feeling". To achieve that , I used the same color combination and basically the same idea, just using different focal points.

For the nature lover/hunter, engineer to be:

21st birthday card for a guy

21st birthday card for a guy

For the music lover / chartered accountant to be:

21st birthday card for a guy

21st birthday card for a guy

I LOVE how this turned out and I think they are going to love it! All cutting and designing done with my Silhouette cameo.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Have a  great week!

Joe, vrou, twee absoluut treffende kaartjies so pragtig verpersoonlik vir elk van die twee jong manne!!!! Ek is mal oor hoe jy die prentjies so met twee lae gedoen het - jou keuse van papier aan die onderkant is so perfek en laat regtig die prentjies lewe!!!! Die manier wat jy die sentiment gedoen het spreek weer van jou briljantheid - wat 'n wonderlike idee - dit lyk so stunning!!! Die tweeling gaan mal wees hieroor, vrou!!! Pragtig gedoen!!!!
Groete en 'n lekker dag vir jou hoor!!!!!

Firstly thank you so much for stopping by my blog and your very positive and encouraging comments. Wow these cards are fantastic. What I love about them is the thought you've put it to achieve individual cards and yet with a central theme. So clever and so creative, they are going to love them. Real stunners x

Kara Lynne said...

Those are both so cool! I love how you personalized them, and both of them are so manly!

Two great cards Hannelie, you managed to pull off the 'same but different' in your cards, which seem as though they would suit the recipients absolutely perfectly!
Thanks so much

Wonderful pair of cards Hannelie! I love the patterned paper shadows behind the main images. Great way to create "twin" cards and still reflect the personality of each nephew.
