Baptism Explosion Box

I love May. It's the best time of the year. Far from Winter and close to Summer. A beginning for the nicest season of the year.

So be it April May season requests for Christening/Baptism, Wedding and Holy Communion Cards are in popular demand here.

I was asked to do a Baptism card by a good friend of mine Grace.

I worked on a green/blue colour explosion box.

I tend to delve away from the normal light blue or pink baby colours for these cards.

I used organza ribbon around the box and the alphabet die by Sizzix

For the middle of the card I used these lovely shoe dies and again coloured organza in light green colour

I have used circle dies all throughout except for the centre

A poem was placed on the other side as well.

I am in love with this envelope die I tend to put it in for these kind of occassions as it is quite normal to give monetary gifts on these occassions.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

And to make it a bit more flashy I sprayed it all with Liquid Pearl Spray to give it that twinkling look

Hope my project inspires some of you today

Fruit Salad Collection .... another blog hop from us DT Members

Fruit Salad Collection Blog Hop

Hello Magnolia Lovers!

A very welcome to our new Magnolia Design Team Blog Hop. The design team is proud to present you the beautiful stamps from the latest Fruit Salad Collection.

This blog hop is sponsored by Magnolia Rubber Stamps Sweden  and of course you have the chance to win one gorgeous price from Magnolia Rubber Stamps on every single blog you leave a comment!!! So be sure to hop on every blog and leave some love!

The blog hop runs until 23. April!! The DT will announce the winners on 24. April in the evening on their blogs.
And now let’s start the fun blog hop!!! If you came from Debbie you’re on the right track! If you just happened on my blog, please from here CLICK HERE   to start at the beginning.

It was great fun creating this card for a friend of colleague who is leaving my team tomorrow.

I have used this stamp from the wonderful collection and coloured her with distress inks - Dusty Concord of course :)

I have used another stamp from Magnolia as a base for this gorgeous girl. I have used a blackboard sort of note on top to write my friend's name on it

Heart tag die is also from Magnolia and I have used purple ribbon to give it more dimension.

Can you spot the leaves in this picture? They are something I formed from extra light clay which is easy to use if you have proper moulds for it. And to finish this project off, I have used the glass beads to give it that extra look.

Hope you like my project xxx
