Clowns

While I was away in the Motorhome, I had a few craft supplies with me. It just so happened that two little grandsons had their birthdays during that time. They are brothers and I wanted to make them similar cards to send so they could have an almost matching pair but still be able to tell whose was whose. I had oval and scallop punches, and started to play with those shapes. A couple of little clowns were soon grinning up at me, and they became the basis for my two cards!

I drew their faces with my Stampin' Write markers and added non Stampin' Up! glitter spots to their hats. The little bow ties were hand cut too, from designer series paper. The designer series paper is from a Christmas stack (shown in the new seasonal catalogue). I flipped the pieces of designer series paper so the two cards were even easier to tell apart. 

Happy birthdays, boys!
