A Halloween Birthday times 2

I am a very lucky person to still have 1 of my grandparents alive.  My nanny is my rock, and as a child it was my favorite place to visit in the summer.

Every morning I would have coffee and toast with her, and we would bake pies or bread(something I haven't conquered without my bread maker machine)!

My nanny was born on Halloween, but what is better than that is that she has a twin sister.  Do you know how hard it is to find a birthday card for a Halloween birthday?  Or for a twin sister?

So, that is where I come in!  I made my nanny a card to send to her sister, Edna in Ontario.

I used our colour of year cardstock, Bashful, and the new Rose Embossing Folder to create the base of this card.  I highlighted the design using the gold shimmer brush.  Using my piercing tool I added a stitched design to the matted sentiment.  

I also embossed the flap of the envelope through the Rose embossing folder.  I have a few coloured envelopes in my possession from Paper Garden, and I was lucky enough to have a 5x7 that was almost an exact match to our Bashful.

For the inside sentiment, I wanted it to be fun, so I stamped the Happy Halloween, Happy Birthday sentiment from the Just to Say stamp set, the the Twin Sister is stamped from the Curlicue Alphabet stamp set, both are from the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection.

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween/Birthday card.
