Christening Gown Card

by Joanne James16. May 2013 13:36

No blog post yesterday as I was holding my second card class of the week. Lots of laughs as always, with pictures and stories to follow, but today I thought I'd share with you a commission I had last week for a christening card. I needed to make an A5 card and decided a christening gown was the order of the day:

I decided to use the large scallop Edgelits die and one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders to create the layers on the dress and sprayed these with Vanilla Smooch Spritz to give the layers a lovely pearlised sheen, to add interest to an otherwise all-white card. Hopefully you can see the effect on this close-up, although white-on-white is incredibly difficult to photograph:

In reality it looked beautiful! Given the size of the card, and the fact that it was intended as a keepsake, I also made a box for it ad finished off with a handmade angel charm - here's a close up:

I even ended up getting out my calligraphy pen to write the dedication on the inside - haven't used that in a while! Whilst I was on something of a christening 'role', I made another couple of smaller cards - lots of photos today, so I'll save those for another post! Hope you like today's card. Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Stampin' Up Supplies:

Cardstock: Whisper White

Tools: Large Scallop Edgelit, Delicate Designs Embossing Folder

Finishing Touches: Vanilla Smooch Spritz, 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon
