Christening Card

Tuesday, 19 March 2013

Afternoon everyone!

Another cold one today, we're expecting more snow but I don't know if we'll see too much of it.
I hope you all enjoyed St. Patrick's Day, I didn't do too much as I wasn't feeling too well, I think the bug that has been doing the rounds at work is trying it's best to catch me.  So even if I wasn't out enjoying myself, at least I was looking a little green. Lol!

So it's time for another challenge at the Creative Card Crew and for this fortnight we are being sponsored by the fabulous Scrapping Center

And they're offering a very generous €15 to spend in their store to one lucky winner!

So, the challenge for the next fortnight is...


I know a lot of people really do find this subject challenging (and not just in card form! lol) including me.
Here's what I did:

I made a Christening easel card.

I printed out the name of the new baby before stamping the LOTV Baby Christening image and I coloured it with the following copics: E21,13,00,0000,R20,E35,B95,93,91,C4,3,2,1,0,YG11
The font of the sentiment is called Ribbon Happy - it's spotty, which I thought went well with the ribbon I used.

I used my score board to score lines diagonally on the card of the front and the base.  I added some pearls to the corners which started life off in white but I used my B95 pen to colour them blue.
The ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl and the flowers are vintage ones that I got ages ago and I forget where.  The little cross is from my stash.
The well used (I've got my money's worth here!) Magnolia swirl die has been utilised again.

And finally, I made a box for it to fit into.

So pop over to the Creative Card Crew blog to check out what the rest of the DT did!
