A Baptism Card

My daughter's friend Stacey, turned 8 this week - her card lent itself beautifully to the Dilly Beans Challenge this week and is a few posts below here. Her eighth birthday also meant another milestone for Stacey. Her family are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - you might know them more commonly as 'Mormons' - and when a child in The Church turns 8, they can choose whether or not to be Baptised and Stacey made the decision to step into the water and take on the covenants that go along with becoming a member of The Church - there's a couple of links above if you're intrigued by this!!

I knew I had to make her another card! I started with a vision - Stacey and her father who would perform the baptism would both be wearing white and I really wanted to do an all white card.... with flowers on! 


I dug out some Safmat to print a sentiment and my XCut Posey dies to make the flowers, Marianne Creatables Chinese Rose to make the rolled roses and a Cuttlebug swirly embossing folder for the background.

I added some sticky gems to the flower centres and tiny heart gems within some of the swirls from the embossing folder. There's some Star Dust Stickles on the rolled roses. And some blingy flourishes to finish.


I am entering this card into the current challenge over at My Craft Creations entitled 'Special Occasions'.
