A Christening...

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!
