Good evening, crafty bloggers.
I have made a card for a little baby boy named Alexander.
He is to be christened at the end of June.
I have chosen Baby Edwin for my card.
I have stamped Baby Edwin onto a Spellbinders Floral Oval with Memento Toffe Crunch ink and coloured him with Polychromos pencils adding Glamour Dust to the stars and surrounded
the image with shabby blue Fran-tage.
I have adhered white string pearls around the inside of the oval die and added white 3mm pearls to each of the corners.
I have inked the edges of Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink and matted them onto Woodware recycled card.
The Poppy Stamps Simple Banner I have stamped with Craftwork Cards Candi Stamps Alphabet spelling the name Alexander.
If you use these stamps. It is best not to press down too hard otherwise the ink will smudge.
I found this out after three attempts. Lol.
I have tied a small bow on each side of the banner with blue/white twine.
The Memory Box Pippi butterflies have been Fran-taged and the centres coloured with a
Powder blue Promarker.
For the smaller butterflies I have used a woodware punch, inked the wings and added
Ranger gold Stickles along the centres
The pretty Scalloped Venice Rose lace, feathers, Tim Holtz ABC charm, white string pearls and shabby blue Fran-tage are all purchased from Live & Love Crafts.
The Roses and Lilies are from WOC and the Blue Berries are Magnolia.
Inside the card has been decorated with the pretty papers and a Floral Oval die.
