Well it was back to card making today, having had yesterday off with my daughter and family on a bit of retail therapy (not of the crafting kind) spending some vouchers I had, and also wandering around the stalls and demonstrations on the "Big Nibble" weekend in our town. Lovely afternoon, but a tad tired last night.
It is my great, great nephew's Christening on Sunday, and it has taken me an age to come up with the card. I won't tell you how many images and layouts I played with. I decided most of them were too fussy, and ended up with this one which I hope has a "Less is More" feel to it. I didn't want it too babyish as he is eight months old now.
White linen finish card stock as base card (although it looks cream in the photo), which I have trimmed with a fancy edge and silvered. The same treatment has been given to the backing card, and the topper, which is mounted on foam tape. I added a couple of lines of pale blue ribbon, and overwrote the silver lettering with a clear sakura sparkle pen, to make it shine, as well as adding a few highlights to the teddy image. Finished off with a silver cross peeloff.
