First Christening Card

Good morning!!

Today I am sharing the Christening card I have made for my friend to give to her friend (are you still with me???) for a Christening (obviouly...LOL!!)

I decided to use a variety of punches, dies and embossing folders, but as I was having a mental blank at the time took some inspiration from last months Craft Stamper.  I'm not sure if it has arrived yet as I had to rely on the post office, and I WILL cry if it doesn't get there in time or is damaged!!  I went for the out of the frame technique, but oh my word this is not easy with the lacy circles die!!  I printed the name of the little boy who's christening it is with my PC and the date, then used my PTI stamps to make them into a ticket.  Some assorted ribbon was stitched onto the ribbon bow with a white button, and I got the butterfly die out again and used the smaller in the set along with my trusty Tesco's punch to add some prettiness 


As this was a special occasion card, I decided it needed a special box to go with it, so cut one out and set about  complimenting the card.  The picture does not do this justice, but there are more die cuts, punching, embossing and a tulle flower under which is hiding a silver teddy bear charm.

Fingers crossed for this one's safe arrival!!

Thanks for looking, more tomorrow
