Christening Card

Hello and Welcome again.

Time flies far to fast these days, I didn't realise it is nearly a week since I was here last.  Have been busy at work and haven't had much time to do the important things like crafting.

My little offering tonight is one I made for my sister-in-law who was going to be a Godmother for the first time and she wanted something special and also a keepsake.

I stamped the LOTV image onto stamping card and coloured it in using my promarkers.  Mounted and layered onto pink card out of my stash using Spellbinders Label 4 then onto patterned paper (sorry I can't remember the paper I used - just thought it went with the theme).  Used a strip of the pink card and punched a border using a Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch. To finish I decorated it with gems - the design was done using a Jewel Template, marking the holes where you want the design to go then placing the gems on the marks (this is a great way to get the look of the more expensive pre-made gem flourishes), flowers from WOC, ribbons and peel offs.
The box was made with the same pink as the main base card. Typed the details of goddaughter onto pink card and then I used Label 4 to make a plaque.  Matted and layered onto mirri card. More flowers and ribbon.  A different Martha Stewart punch was used, decorated with gems and secured with 2 different lengths of ribbon.

Definitely very girlie.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my little creations. 
Hugs xx
