Happy Friday Everyone!
I'm back today with a sweet card for a baptism. I don't often make special occasion cards like this because most of my friends have been married for years and don't have babies anymore. But I sure enjoyed making this one.
I was asked to make a card for a friend's grandson's christening. The first stamp I thought to use was 'Butterfly Baby'. I really love this image. It can be for either a boy or a girl; it can be a butterfly or an angel; it can be for a baby shower, birthday, christening or just because! It's so versatile and I love that! And guess what! For a short time, 'Butterfly Baby' is specially priced at only $7.99 at the LDRS store!!!
First, I grabbed some of my favorite Maja papers in neutrals with a little bit of blue. Then I painted the image very softly with TH distress inks.
I layered and layered the papers inside and out. I added tags, flowers and lace til I couldn't fit anymore on the front. I grabbed my favorite Lovely View die and added a little texture behind the image. Then I dug through my bins and drawers and found the metal heart charm and little white frame. The charm had a loop on the top that I didn't like so I broke it off using some jewelry pliers.
I searched the internet for the perfect poem for the inside of the card.
Here's a close up of the card. I am so very pleased with how it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
