Hello everyone and Happy Sunday! A couple of weeks ago we had a baptism in the family and I made a couple of cards. The card I am sharing today is one I made for my mom and dad to give. I will be sharing the card that we gave them in a couple of days. My cousin Dani and her husband Shawn had a sweet baby boy--baby Ross and he is so darn cute! They are so lucky because I think he is the happiest baby ever--he didn't fuss--not one time the whole day!
For the base of the card I used Pearl Metallic paper and the card is a 5 x 7 size. Then for the embossed mat I used S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A die template and EL-028 Reverence M-Bossabilities™ Folder both from Spellbinders Paper Arts®. Just a little tip for embossing heavier weight cardstock--fill up a little spray bottle and add a couple of drops of Dawn dish soap. Then lightly mist the front and back of the cardstock. Doing this with help to break down the fibers in the paper and result in a nice crisp emboss.
I typed up the sentiment and printed it out. Then I used S4-356 Floral Ovals to cut/emboss the oval shape. I added 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to the back of the oval die cut to add some dimension. Then I added a few jump rings and a couple of charms.
Here is a close up of the charms.
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! It's a rainy day here in MN. I think everyone is praying for some sunshine but the weather report doesn't sound too hopeful. I think we are supposed to have rain everyday this week. I want to say Thank You all so much for you wonderful comments about the New Design on my blog--I really appreciate it!!
On a more personal note I want to say a Special and Happy Birthday to my oldest son Dusty!!
Happy 20th Birthday!!! I hope you have an Amazing year!! Love you- ♥Mom
