Pink Christening…

Our great-niece, Cadence Ann, is getting Christened tomorrow. Unfortunately, I don’t have any baptism stamps! What’s a girl to do? Improvise!

The idea for the card was borrowed from one I saw on SCS. That idea was adapted from a “onesie” card that has been seen many different ways. I free-cut the dress from a regular A2 card shape. I then ran it through my Big Shot with the swiss dot Texturz Plate and punched the bottom and sleeves with the Eyelet Border punch. However, I wanted to include some pink touches, and not just make this an all-white card. So, with some help from Pretty In Pink taffeta ribbon around the middle and Pink Pirouette card stock, this pretty little number was given a punch of color. The neckline was punched using the 1 3/8 circle punch and the corners were rounded with the Corner Rounder punch. To add some detail, a mask was made using a strip of scrap paper and the Scallop Border punch. I then sponged some Pink Pirouette onto the matching card stock.

Not having any suitable stamps, the inside was computer generated, then printed onto Whisper White card stock. It was then hand-trimmed to fit into the card.

OH – our meeting today was FABULOUS! *waves to Sarah, Cathy, and anyone else visiting* I will have pics of our amazing make and takes, in addition to some adorable (and incredible!) samples. My upline and up-upline are simply inspiring. Today was such a positive, informative, fun time. I’m really lucky to be in this group!

Enjoy!
