Twins are Three - CAS Tilda

CAS cards are always a bit of a challenge for me. Finding the correct amount of 'less is more' really does exercise my 'little grey cells'! LOL.

An angled photo which hopefully is picking up some of that sparkle & shine & that bit of dimension too.
I 'sat' my image of Tilda (who has been given a paper-pieced dress), on the rectangular name plates applicable for each of the twins. Each Tilda, coloured with Promarkers has also been given a little hair-bow ribbon of a slightly different shade of pink (well with identical twins it helps everyone know who is who!!! LOL).  Tilda & her accompanying name-plate & pink mat were added onto each card using glue gel.  Both cards were then given the all-important number denoting their age - well, you think you are big when you are 3 don't you! LOL.

Each number consists of 2 layers, the top one was given a healthy dose of sparkle using Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle and the off-set layer beneath given a more than healthy dose of Crafter's Companion Spray & Shine. Dimension was given to the numerical layers with more glue-gel. The fronts were then finished off with 3 gems each - I made sure each was well stuck down just in case the twins started to 'pick at' them..... you have to think of these things don't you with little'uns.

I created a sort of replication on the inside of the cards, this time adding a circular numerical image from Cindy Close to the larger platform each Tilda sits on.  I have also coloured Tilda on the inside of cards, this time using subtle grey shades, again using Promarkers.

Thanks for stopping by,
