Our little Jack will be baptized in March so I was debating on how to make a card for his special day. I finally decided to go fairly clean and simple with the design and I really love the way it looks now. I used the Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamp Set 362 Crosses.
First I took white card stock and used an anti-static pad to remove any moisture and oils from handling it. Then with a Versamark clear ink pad I stamped the cross onto this card stock panel. I added Sparkle N Sprinkle Gold Detail (EP168) embossing powder and then heat set that. With two shades of blue I colored in this gold cross with some Bic alcohol ink markers.
My next step was to die cut this cross out with a Gina K. Designs Small Double Stitched circle die and I also die cut a Gina K. Designs Large Single Stiched circle die for the blue layer around it. I set these aside and then used a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder to make a pattern on a piece of white card stock. I cut that embossed panel to the size I wanted and then added that to a layer of blue card stock.
For the sentiment I stamped it with black Versafine ink onto white card stock and after fussy cutting it I layered that to blue card stock. I assembled the various layers onto a white card base, The circle was popped up but I left a bit of room so that I could slide one end of the sentiment underneath it. The last addition to my card was to add a small blue and white gingham ribbon.
Well, we are getting snow. Sounds like we are in for quite an accumulation too. I so wish it was a nice soft spring rain with warm enough temps to not freeze instead of snow. I guess I am never satisfied. But I thank the Lord regardless for the moisture we are getting.
I hope you had a great week. It seems the days just fly by. I can hardly believe the weekend begins again tomorrow. Thanks always for your visits and wonderful words about my cards. I very much appreciate them.
