Crafty Secrets Bless This Baby

As I mentioned in my last post over the weekend we went to WI and my cousin Dani and her husband Shawn had their baby girl baptized and then after the baptism we had a luncheon at their home and then the baby shower. It was a wonderful day and most of our family was able to be there. A Fantastic way for Dani to have her 1st Mother's Day!

Here is the card that I made for them.
I just love the image of the baby with the little cherubs up above with garlands of flowers. Here is a close up of the image. The image is from The Joys of Life booklet from Crafty Secrets. The Joys of Life booklet has so many wonderful pictures from Childhood, School Days, Weddings & Babies just to name a few. The booklet is filled with so many beautiful pictures for all the special events in our lives. I cut out the image, distressed and inked the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger. To make the mat behind the image I used the Labels Three S4-189 die template along with the Wizard from Spellbinders to cut and embossed the diecuts. For the top label diecut I used some cardstock from Core'dinations, the Whitewash Collection. I love the look you get after sanding the cardstock and the color core pops through. The sentiment, Bless this Baby also came from the Joys of Life booklet from Crafty Secrets. I used the Long Classic Rectangles Sm. S4-144 die template to make the diecut. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Ink and then added some lace and vintage buttons along the bottom. The flourish diecut on the top was made using the Flourish Accents S4-198 die template.On the side of the card I used the same Core'dinations cardstock and the Classic Lace Border Grand S7-014 die template from Spellbinders to make the gorgeous lace diecut. I think the Classic Lace die template is one of my favorites! I love all of the detail and it can be used with almost everything. I also added a piece of pink velvet ric-rac to cover up the edge of the diecut and I thought the velvet trim gave it a softer look. The background paper is designer paper from The Robin's Nest, it has dainty little flower bouquets. I also added tiny little drops of liquid pearls for accents on the card.Here is a picture of the inside of the card. The Congratulations stamp is from the Cherish stamp set from Crafty Secrets and I added a little color to the flowers with Copic markers. Here is another picture so you can read the sweet little poem I found online. You can also click on all of the photos to enlarge them.
