A Christening Card

Monday, 4 May 2009

Here's a card I made for a friend whose baby was being christened yesterday. I followed the lovely sketch from Sketch Saturday:


And here's my card:


I used the gorgeously cute Ellie stamp from Stamposaurus Stamps which I coloured with my pro-markers. I used dp from Craft Creations and ran the pink piece through my cuttlebug swiss dots folder (I don't use that enough!) I cut the image with my oval nesties with a scalloped oval behind and doodled some dots with my white glaze pen. A wee bit of pink gingham ribbon, a few punched flowers and a bit more doodling and there you have it!

Here's a close-up of Ellie:


I followed an element of the sketch for the inside too:


Oh, I forgot about the little crystal flower on the front, you can sort of make it out here, it really added a bit of sparkle to the card!


So there you are, I hope you liked it! I'm still up to my eyes with my friends wedding invitations so not sure when I'll have another card to show. But I'll try to keep up with my hopping in the meantime!

Happy crafting!
