Well, it has been a busy week! We have been busy getting ready for Jennifer's Baptism - which was today. We just got home and had a wonderful day - even the weather cooperated. I have to say that she wasn't too happy with the water on her head and she let everyone in the church know it!
I really had never made a Baptism card as I wasn't into card making when Rachel and Sarah were Baptized. I had an idea of what I wanted to do and finally put it together late last night! Nothing like waiting to the last minute, but there was a lot of cooking that had to get down first, as everyone came back to my daughter's house after church to celebrate. Here's what I came up with.
Here is the front of the card. I used Shimmering White for my base card and layered it with Pretty & Pink after I had embossed it with the embossing folder Framed Tulips by SU. I had seen videos using the Lattice Die from SU to make a cross and then decorated it with some petal flowers that I have had for years along with some pearls. Of course I also needed a ribbon.
This was the inside of the card which I computerized and printed out on Pretty & Pink. Of course, I needed some more pearls and flowers!
I probably overdid the flowers, but I couldn't stop using them. I loved how the whole thing came together and so did my daughter!
Here's a picture of the cake we had. I just thought it was soooo pretty!
And here is a picture of Jennifer after the busy day getting ready for bed!
We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and are getting ready to celebrate Memorial Day and the long weekend!
Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
