Christening wishes…

My friend, Clare, asked me to make a personalised Christening card for baby James, who is being Christened on Sunday.  This is what I came up with…

Hope you like it Clare, and that you and the family have a lovely time on Sunday.

Stampin’ Up supplies used:

cardstock: whisper white, bashful blue; stamp sets: bundle of love, just perfect alphabet, in the stars (retired); inks: bashful blue, soft suede; punches: ½” circle, word window, modern label; accessories: bashful blue stitched grosgrain ribbon (retired), gold brads, white gel pen, blender pen, snail adhesive, stampin’ dimensionals, patterned paper from my stash.

To make the blue “scalloped” edge to the white oval, I punched out circles in bashful blue using the ½” circle punch, and then adhered them to the back of the oval using snail adhesive.  I had to jiggle them around a bit so they fit the shape, but I managed it …just about!

Double Christening card…

My friend asked me to make a personalised Christening card for a brother and sister, but as they are a couple of years apart age-wise I didn’t want to use images that were specifically for babies.  Here’s the step card I came up with:

Stampin’ Up! supplies used:

cardstock: whisper white, pretty in pink, bashful blue; stamp sets: just perfect alphabet, bundle of love; punches: ¾” circle, small heart, 1¼” square, designer label; accessories: white organza ribbon, stampin’ dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today.
