DT Christening Card!

Morning all! Has anyone else got the post christmas blues?? I've just been feeling a bit blue these past few days, no reason, so assume it must be the lull after all that christmas and new year excitement!!

So to try and pull me out of my slump I have been in my craft room creating up a storm (well not quite, but I have made a few cards!) Lol!

Me & my OH have been invited to a christening next weekend. It's one of my OH's work friends, so it was the perfect opportunity to use one of my new Sugar Nellie DT stamps. I though this Vintage Baby Image was perfect for a christening card, and so easy to colour!


Image: Vintage Baby from the Home Grown range by Sugar Nellie. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: DCWV Glitter Stack


Sentiment: Elzybells Everyday Greetings & Everyday Add On's

Tools: SU scalloped border punch, White embossing powder, heat gun

Misc: Gingham ribbon from stash, 3D foam dots

You can't really tell from the picture but I added 3D foam dots to the image for some added dimension to the card. Well I hope they like the card, I'm always a bit stumped wth what to do for a christening card {it's only the 3rd one I've made}.

I hope you all enjoy what is left of your weekend. Another lazy day for me. The football is on TV at lunchtime (Man United V's Leeds, come on Leeds!!) and it's far too cold to be going outside today. It snowed here last night and it's all still on the ground. I don't fancy risking a broken limb, so the craft room it is!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
