This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
So, it's taken me over 2 years to complete this set of "New Birth" cards for upload (ooops! Still not entirely sure how that happened!), but here they are at last - just in time to be included in the Maternity and Beyond theme! :-D

Without further ado, here are twenty-six greetings cards for use with MogHughson's Postal System. If you download these cards along with MogHughson's Postal System, then your sims will be able to send these cards to their friends, relatives and acquaintances in the neighbourhood. Sims who receive these cards will receive a small positive boost to their friendship level with the sender.

This set of cards includes four sub-types of card - cards for twin boys, cards for twin girls, gender neutral twin cards and cards for mixed gender/boy-girl twins. All of the images are free pictures from Pixabay, some of which I have edited. They all have a variation on the same basic text - "Two new babies! Congratulations on the birth of your sons/daughters/your new arrivals!" The envelopes are either blue, pink or cream/yellow, depending on the card.

All of the package files are numbered according to the above pictures, so you can delete any of the cards that you don't want in your game.

These are the fourth of six sets of "New Birth" cards that I plan on (eventually!) making and uploading to Mod The Sims. The six greetings cards sets will be as follows.

New Birth Set #1 - Baby Boy
New Birth Set #2 - Baby Girl
New Birth Set #3 - Gender Neutral
New Birth Set #4 - Twins [i.e. this set]
New Birth Set #5 - Triplets & Quads
New Birth Set #6 - SURPRISE! (You'll have to wait and see for this set. It's going to be awesome, though, I'm very excited about it!)

Without MogHughson's Postal System these greetings cards are useless! Make sure you head over to her thread and check it out. It includes information on how the postal system works, as well as instructions on how to make your own cards, if you fancy giving that a go! :-)

I hope that you all enjoy using these greetings cards, and the upcoming sets, in your games.

Additional Credits:
Many, many thanks to MogHughson for creating and sharing her Postal System and for providing templates and detailed instructions to allow people to create their own greetings cards! I do rather enjoy making them!

Thank you to Kate from Parsimonious - the cards are displayed on her "Winterwood Shelf".

Thanks as always to the makers of SimPE.

And thank you to the Mod The Sims admins and moderators for making this such a great place to share custom content, and for the bimonthly themes! I'm a sucker for achievement stickers..... :-D

You are all most welcome! :-) I am quite excited to have them in my game, I would really like my sims to send more greetings cards. I am delighted to see that the current tri-monthly theme is Seasons & Celebrations - as having a new babies (or a whole bunch of new babies at once!) is definitely something to celebrate, I hope to finish and upload set 5 and 6 as part of the theme and finally finish all of these New Birth cards which I started making over 2 years ago.....
